Biography


 
Having resided, one time or another, in the Mid-south, Rocky Mountains, California and the Northwest I have been able to include the unique flavor of each of these geographical areas into my artwork.  However, the South and Northwest have always provided the richest trove of subject matter and remain the inspiration for much of my work. While working with Portland artist and teacher Emerson Christoff I developed my current landscape style which is influenced by such pre-impressionist painters as George Inness, Asher Durand, and Jean Baptiste-Corot.  My figure and portrait style was developed while living in Clarksdale Mississippi. I cultivated an interest in art and oil painting while in high school and college an interest which I retained until retirement at which point I was able to devote the necessary time and effort to my work.  I show at The Cannon Beach Arts Association, Cannon Beach Oregon, the Trails End Gallery in Gearhart Oregon, the Lakewood Center/Lake Oswego Arts Festival, lake Oswego Oregon, The Chehalis Cultural Center, Newberg, Oregon (Lavender Festival), The Cave Gallery in Vancouver Washington, the Camas Gallery in Camas Washington and at the Summer gatherings in front of Blooms Flowers on First Street in Lake Oswego, Oregon.  I am currently president of the Society of Washington Artists and board member of Columbia Arts Network, Vancouver, Washington.
