I was an art student who became a screenwriter. Twenty years later, I'm abandoning the page and returning to the canvas as I attempt to tell stories through pictures.
I create mixed media paintings and giclee prints celebrating personal connections with time and place.
Incredibly, I was never taught self expression in art class, I learned it through screenwriting. In the first part of this series I share the importance of discovering the WHY in art.

When I choose a subject matter for a painting it's because I've uncovered a narrative I emotionally connect to. This dialogue with the subject matter continues as I begin to paint.
