Biography


BIOGRAPHY
I am currently developing my personal style in watercolors and in pastels.  Inspiration for my work comes from my observation of nature and the beauty found in my surroundings. There is no better way to paint than in plein air, where one can truly experience the sounds, intense color and beauty of the moment.  I have painted and exhibited in the Wayne (PA) Arts Festival, Duluth (GA) Arts Festival and most recently in the Gilmer Arts Festival.
 
I also paint from setting up a still life of colorful related objects.  I have to fall in love with something about the subject, whether it is the color, the form, the interest in the action, before I am inspired to paint it.
 
My most recent paintings depict a relationship between two individuals or an individual and his art. The action may be a musician playing an instrument, two siblings engaged in an activity, or a teacher instructing a student. I love to push color in striking ways in order to create a powerful visual impact for the viewer.
 
I have received instruction from many noted artists: Richard McKinley, Margaret Dyer, Teresa DeSeve, Tony Allain, and Aline Ordman in pastel and Jim McFarlane in watercolor.
