The excitement of spring and the big sky it brings. My mother always had a strawberry patch. Each spring we would make every possible strawberry recipe. The clouds and the wind whipped hills reminds me of the lushes dramatic days of strawberry delights.
Artist StatementWhat I want to give is a picture of an artist’s heart, my heart. I use simply the fingers on my hands, oil, and canvas. In a world of ups and downs, a positive expression immortalized on canvas can have a stable, meaningful influence in a room and in a life.

My Favorite Memory
I was sitting in the hospital bed holding my daughter when my two-year-old asked to hold her. I reluctantly asked him to be placed by me and he reached over, kissed her gently and said, "There, there, my Mantha Cake" (Samantha Kate) his sister's name. This was the start of my children's life together. They have been best friends and the light of my life ever since.
