I aspire to capture the spirit and emotion of each painting I create. I just love painting in pastel! As I reach out and hold these sticks of paint, I can just about feel the draw of my hand to put these fantastic colors onto a surface, be it animals or people, ocean spray or mountainous backgrounds, realism or impressionism. I hope my paintings reach your heart.
As a visitor of Peru for 20 years, I am constantly in awe of their history, admire the people, adore the llamas, alpacas and vicuñas, and especially the Peruvian Paso horses, which we raised and bred for pleasure for a dozen years in Texas. Our current two Peruvian Pasos came with us to Texas after a recent 4-year stay in Peru.
Through my painting, I hope to convey the emotional response I get in relation to the essence of whoever or whatever is my subject for painting.
