Why Art?
What is my purpose behind this desire to create art? I am driven to capture the essence of the subjects.  My passion is to work en plein air with the pure pigment of pastel. To paint outside: to feel the air, the temperature, the sounds and fragrance of the environment, is invigorating. I often paint the structures humans inject into the landscape.  I have been drawing structures all my life, so it is interesting to me, to preserve them and study their textures, especially if they are very old and showing their character.
For the past 20 years, I have been developing my pastel and watercolor painting techniques, studying with nationally acclaimed pastel artists  to find my own style and voice in the arts. I have participated in many exhibitions, plein air events, and solo shows along the way. 
I am a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers. It has been my career of 50 years to create the living and working environments for my clients. Some of my art is now in my clients' homes and offices. My goal now is to focus on my painting, to enjoy favorite subjects of landscapes, cityscapes and interior subjects. My work is primarily in pastel and watercolor, while also experimenting in acrylics, ink and graphite. May you enjoy this journey into my art as I enjoy the journey to create it.
