Biography


I always have been inspired by light and color.  It is their dynamic interplay that creates beauty and interest in my visual world.  I find my favorite images outdoors, either in sunlit spaces or moody shadows.  I approach each canvas as a new challenge to capture this fleeting experience.  All my senses are activated when doing "plein air" painting: the sounds of a nearby melodic bird or rustling trees, the warmth of the sun, or the eratic whipping of the wind. 
When not able to paint outside I pull together items nearby and create a still life scene, using the same inspiration of the play of light and color.  My good fortune of traveling to interesting and beautiful locations has afforded me the opportunity of photographing scenes that might be used as reference in later works. At times I have played with them as subjects for my paintings.
 
Primarily self-taught, I have engaged in workshops with a large number of internationally-known artists.  
 
I am available for private or group instruction, as well as critiques and art consultation.
I also do commissions upon request.
My studio is open by appointment.
