Welcome to About Me.

My work is deeply influenced by
abstract expressionist artist Mark Rothko
whose paintings deal with
basic color combinations and shapes
that create a specific mood and impression.
Nearly all of my pieces of art evoke feelings
related to hope, happiness, harmony,
peace, light and serenity.
In many ways, my paintings are quiet
reflections designed to calm and comfort.

You can find my paintings on display at
various Peoria area institutions and businesses,
including Studios on Sheridan, Exhibit A Gallery,
Art Space, and River City Fitness.
I also enjoy handpainting and designing
my own notecard line, HeartART,
which is carried by several floral shops
and art galleries in the Peoria area.
You can order my HeartART notecards
on the HeartART page here on my website.

Creating art is a
tremendously rewarding activity.
It is especially rewarding
to see how each and every piece of art
takes on a creative life all its own.
