Above the Clouds


I am a full time, professional artist entering my 23rd year of painting on an almost daily basis. The serene oil paintings of every subject matter are something I am very passionate about, and I love to collaborate on commission work that people would love to have in their home or business. I also enjoy teaching "paint and sip" classes in acrylic at home parties, or for fundraisers. Look under the "Gallery" tab to see "Sip and Paint Parties" and canvases I've already done, and click on the "Shows and Events" tab for upcoming parties! Additionally, I write a blog-style column for the Susquehanna County Independent called "Brush with Life." Click on "Blog" in the header on this site to read some of the funny things about life to which we can all relate! I hope you enjoy this site!
