Much of my childhood was spent outdoors in the South of France where the blues of the sky, sea and lavender blooms, the greens of the vineyards and the pine covered hills, and the bright yellows of the broom blossoms gave me a deep appreciation for the joy of color. When I discovered colors in the tubes of paint in my uncle’s magic paint box at 16, I wanted to use them to bring the colors I loved to life in paintings.
I currently show my work at Paseo Gallery One in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
