Biography


STYLE: Representational/impressionist.  best known for "intimate landscapes" featuring old buildings and architecture in France, Italy, Holland England, , San Miguel de Allende (Mexico) and  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. 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 and Kenn Backhaus.
 
MY MISSION: 
I feel a calling to create beauty as my response to make the world a better place. What a joy for me to be able to paint nearly every day in my north-light flooded fourth floor studio in my Boulder, Colorado. I easily put in 4-6 hours of painting. Painting on location, “plein-air” makes for stronger artistic “seeing” and my color mixing and ability to create the effects of light has only added to my skills in the studio.
