Leg's - Watching The Tide

Drawn deep from the magic of my lake shore memories, my oil paintings are the essence of air, sand and water.  To step into my studio is to step onto the golden sands of the Great Lakes beaches, damp northern air ruffling your hair, on your way to the cool, blue green Lake Michigan waters that wash sand from between your toes.  I love to paint water because it nourishes my soul.  Water touches my emotions and serves as my foundation.
