Many layers of oil paint or pastel go into my work, creating a third dimension in each original piece. The subject matter changes and varies from a study of a single flower to the wide open expanses of the Alaskan wilderness. I am most renowned for my mastery of water images. I have been juried into 20 national and international shows in the last 36 months and now belong to the “Signature Circle” for Paint America, and I have “signature membership” in The Pastel Society of Colorado and Plein Air Artists of Colorado. In 2019, I was juried into many venues. In the past I was also included in the prestigious “Plein Air Rockies” taking the Silver Award and Wyoming’s “Prairies to Peaks” taking Second Place (or first place under Best of Show). Previously I was a featured artist in American Art Collector, Southwest Art, Colored Pencil Magazine, and many others. “Plein Air” magazine includes an article written by me and an editorial on my artwork. I am currently being represented by four galleries in three different states. I live in Phoenix, Arizona with my beloved basset hounds, Mallory and Mr. Gus.
I believe I am “Creating a legacy, one original at a time.”
