During a trip to Europe 20 years ago, I was profoundly moved while viewing the incredible art in Paris, especially that of the Impressionists. That experience inspired me to begin my journey of interpreting the beauty that surrounds me in the historic village where I live. I'm always searching for inspirational moments to capture on canvas, whether a beautiful landscape or captivating people. Just a glance out of my studio window at the 100 year old maple trees lining the street inspires me to continually pick up my paint brushes and palette knives to continue on this journey.
