Artist Statement

I am a third generation pastel painter working primarily en plein  air. 
Living in Florida I have seen much of its’ natural beauty destroyed by rampant development and construction. 
I hope to capture and preserve some small piece of what remains undisturbed. 
I have studied in oils, acrylics and watercolor but prefer the immediacy and intimacy afforded by pastel.
 I am fortunate to belong to a local group of plein air painters who try to paint together at least once a week, weather permitting.  
We are all very supportive and encouraging of one another’s successes. 
This is something that is not always found in the competitive world of art.
