About the Artist

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.”
