A second generation master artist well known across the continent for her evocative landscapes. "Preferring to paint from life, or in "plein-air", the open air, I find that art, my driving passion is larger than life. Being greatly inspired by the American Impressionists, I also choose a variety of subject matter, landscapes, seascapes, interiors, figures, and portraiture. The play of light and shadows generally draws me to a specific scene, often an every day spot that has gone unnoticed. By exaggerating colors, using a rhythmic composition, broken brushwork or texture, I transform the ordinary into an interesting and exciting work of art. My paintings capture the essence of the land, the mystery, a mood, an emotion, or perhaps only a dream. "
