Artist Statement

I live and work from my studio in Redmond, Washington. In addition to my innate artistic skills, I am exceptionally organized and detail oriented with a love for creative challenges. This balance of artistic and problem solving skills has allowed me create a body of 125 acrylic paintings, exhibited, published and collected throughout the United States.

Are you interested in publishing one of my images or buying a painting? Let me know what you have in mind at candoo2@hotmail.com. I would love hearing from you.
