Creating a painting is like performing a magic act - you're never sure it will work, but is so satisfying when it does --




Biography



 

Painting en plein air is my “Indiana Jones” adventure: battling the rain, sun, wind, bugs and changing light conditions, I hope to capture a vision of the beauty of the landscape around me.  After creating a composition and penciling it in, I mix the oils and paint quickly while focusing on lights, darks, values and color accuracy. 
 
I paint in the Impressionist tradition and have been a member artist with the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery since 1996.
