Welcome to my 30 year painting retrospective. Whether you simply take a brief look at the paintings or you go a bit deeper and discover the deeper meaning some of them have for me by reading the descriptions I hope you'll enjoy your visit. (To enlarge paintings click on them.)

This first painting below is one I did by feeling my own body movements and drawing what I felt.  I did the painting to represent the stages of a woman's life from being a timid young woman, to slowly coming into her own, to blossoming into her full self, and finally having the complete self confidence in who she is to dance into her future with total assurance.  My daughter honored (and surprised me) by having this made into a tattoo that she wears.  She added the hands of God holding the women up and the dates of my two kidney transplants under each hand.  Many blessings, daughter and thank you...
