My aim is to share my sense of connection with the natural world as richly as I perceive it, a connection I experience as joy, wholeness and tranquility when painting en plein air.
I've been painting most of my life and studied with Mitch Albala, Gage Academy of Art and Pacific Northwest Art School; Kathryn Stats of Texas, landscape painter; Camille Przewodek, Petaluma, CA, a well-known colorist; Derek Buckner, a well recognized NYC artist; and many other fine instructors. A few years ago, I attended the Marchutz School of Drawing and Painting, Institute for American Universities, Aix-en-Provence, France and I minored in Art in college. My work has been shown in many venues and currently, at Gallery North in Edmonds, WA, where my newest paintings are shown each month.
I'm a member of the Oil Painters of America (OPA), American Impressionist Society (AIS) and Plein Air Washington Artists (PAWA).
