About

I am a landscape artist working mainly in acrylics but sometimes mixed media. I believe we are gifted with creativity by God  to uplift people and  point us  towards  a power beyond ourselves. This blog is a  collation of artworks and what inspired me to paint them. I also post recent happenings to keep people up to date with my latest works and exhibitions.
