I have always had an interest and fascination with painting but did not begin to think about acting on this interest until I was living in Germany for several years. While in Germany I had the opportunity to travel around Europe and experience the history, and culture of different countries and to visit many amazing art museums. I found myself thinking about how artists have captured the beautiful architecture, countryside, mountains, quaint villages and farmsteads throughout history and so my inspiration began. After I left Germany and moved to Tartu, Estonia, a lovely little country on the Baltic Sea. Ultimately it was the beautiful Estonian landscape that inspired me to pick up a brush and try my hand at oil painting. In particular, I was captivated each day when I looked out my upstairs window at a beautiful slow moving river named the Emajogi, lazily flowing by my house. I was so amazed at how the river seemed to have its own mood and personality due to the light, shadows and colors at different times of the day and during the different seasons. As fate would have it my neighbor and now dear friend was an accomplished Estonian abstract artist, who mentored and encouraged me to paint on a daily basis. So with support from my friend, I embarked on a self taught journey into the world of painting, learning about color mixtures, shadows, scale and many other facets of painting. I also gained additional perspectives on expressionist art from an art professor at Tartu, University.

My recent work seeks to blend reality with imagination by attempting to let my sub conscience dictate the colors and composition when I paint. I have a mental picture when I begin to paint, but I don't know the final outcome until I get a feeling that it is complete.
