I’m often asked what inspires me with my art. Nature inspires me in a big way. There is a trail near our house that I like to walk to get out in nature.

Painting technique video and whimsical paintings

I made my first artist videos yesterday. I’m going to be posting a few videos regarding my painting technique. They are short and a little rough around the edges but they were fun to make! The first one will be about how I start a painting. The others are about how I get the texture and line work in my paintings. I’ll post a link to my youtube videos after I get them finalized – so stay tuned. Also I’d…
