The power, strength and tranquility of the ocean environment have embraced my soul and the connection I have through my emotions and
memories are expressed through my paintings. Being self-taught I continue to study online, attend artist workshops and paint en plein air
weekly at different island locations with a local group called the Palletteers. My skills continue to improve and evolve as I am exposed to new and exciting challenges. Currently I am striving to capture the mesmerizing beauty of our local flowers, historic architecture and ocean waves by using different media to express atmospheric conditions.
While studying Environmental Sciences at Florida Institute of Technology in Jensen Beach, I developed a passion for underwater photography. I retired from the construction industry in 2006 and relocated to
St. Croix, and I'm now a full time Scuba Instructor at N2 the Blue The never ending variety and beauty of the sea has been my passion and hobby for as long as I can remember, it all travels home with me, tucked
safely away inside the digital images of my camera and my dreams.
