Biography


"I have been fascinated by the visual world around me since childhood .  Art has always been a part of my life. For the past 25 years I have lived the life of a professional artist and teacher.  Currently my full time career is teaching high school art. I love teaching and encouraging others in their artistic journey. My first love in painting is probably landscape but I also paint florals, still lifes, animals and people. One of my favorite things is to spend a day in the mountains plein air painting.  I often explore the more personal creative avenues of self expression which has produced a series of "contemporary" paintings." Lately I have been working on a continuing series of abstract expression paintings. I am inspired by the challenge of responding to the medium without the consideration and distraction of subject matter. I have been blessed with recognition in a number of prestigious shows including The National Watercolor Society, Allied Artists of America (New York City), Watercolor USA, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Exhibit, Top 100 Arts for the Parks, The Colorado Governors Art Show, Colorado Watercolor Society, and others. My number one passion in life is loving and serving my Lord Jesus Christ. I give all of the glory and honor for everything that I am to Him. Psalm 63:3,4 "Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify You.  I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands."
