On the out-going tide the water rushes over the flats of Anna Maria Island creating a rip where the Gulf meets the Bay. On the lee side of the rip the Snook "wait" to catch a tasty morsel. While the sand perch "watch" for the chance to slip by. To create is a passion and the diverse Florida environment is such an inspiration.I enjoy capturing the landscape and wildlife of this region in oils, acrylics and colored pencils. Art is always part of my life and my body of work encompasses realistic subject matter from painting to illustrations to portraits. I have artwork in corporate and private collections both nationally and internationally. Having lived in Miami, Costa Rica, Texas and now the Tampa Bay area I can be found painting plein air along the Florida beaches.
