Biography


STYLE: Representational/impressionist.  best known for "intimate landscapes" featuring old buildings and architecture in France, Italy, Holland, San Miguel de Allende (Mexico) and England and Key West, Florida.
 
TRAINING:
I have been a professional painter for over 30 years. Beginning with watercolor I later added acrylic and then oil as my preferred medium. My goal has always been stay on the growing-edge, to expand my knowledge of brush-work, design and color. Among the Master painters with whom I have studied are: Scott Christensen (Plein-Air), Jeff Legg and Robert A Johnson (Still life) and Kevin Weckbach (Masterpainting studies 3 years) and Phil Starke. Each has made a significant impact technically and professionally.  
 
 
I work nearly every day, in my Boulder, Colorado studio/gallery, painting  4-6 hours; although I have often painted on location in Colorado, Europe and San Miguel Mexico.
