I want to thank all my new and established collectors and friends who have come forward in the last few months to make 2008 an amazingly fantastic year. We sold over 28 paintings in the final couple months of the year and your support means very much to me and my family. The Fact that in financially difficult times so many of you have fallen in love with and believed in my art enough to give them new homes has not been taken lightly. 2009 is going to be another great year, as I continue to learn and to push the potential of my paintings to bring a little added beauty and serenity into the world. I look forward to seeing many of you again at my shows this year and to making many new friends also. So please stay in touch, and as always let me know what you think of the paintings and the directions I'm taking them in.
Look for the painting "Still Beauty" in the upcoming American Art Collector magazine in the Savvy Collector's Preview Guide to Upcoming Shows in Conjunction with my February show with Jeff White at Cole Gallery in Edmonds Washington.

My art hints at a story and then invites you to finish the narrative. My style has been called Inspired Expressionism, which combines impressionistic brush strokes and a touch of realism to create the atmosphere and lighting woven into my work.
