I am inspired by the Impressionists, especially Monet, Degas, and Cassatt. They painted with feeling and expression . . . something I strive for in my work. I love to paint - everything from landscapes, portraits, florals, still life, contemporary, animals, and more. Acrylic is my favorite medium, but I also use watercolor, pastel, colored pencil, graphite, and inks.
