I am a Florida Landscape artist, I have been enjoying the wonderment of Florida landscapes and documenting their beauty for the past 16 years. As an artist, my inspiration is born from my surroundings; whether it is the marshes, waterways, or beachfront, which are all a stone's throw away from my home in Florida, or the mountains of Colorado, which I love to hike and explore on occasional holidays away from home.
The Biltmore and Cambridge Who's Who have both recognized me for demonstrating dedication, leadership and excellence in Fine Art. In acknowledgement of excellence for my work, I was also honored with an Award of Excellence in 2007 by The St. Augustine Art Association.
For nearly two decades, as a North Florida artist I have been capturing the beauty of landscapes with a brush and canvas. From saltwater marshes bathed in morning sunlight to the peaks of mountain tops that pierce the skies, delicate brush strokes, and exciting color palette to capture the eerie blue hue of a distant storm, the subtle green highlights of a creek at dusk, or the delicate movement of a crane's feather. The images of my work on the web are only a hint of the awesome effects put to canvas through my brush strokes of oils, in addition to acrylic medium and watercolors.
What makes my paintings so unique is the effort I make to immerse myself in nature when creating one of my landscape paintings. I can often be found on a sandy beach at sunrise, diligently painting, or paddling my kayak through the saltwater inlets under a full lit moon. Only by surrounding herself in the natural landscapes that she paints can I capture all the intimate details of the beauty before me.
