Juried Artist BPAF 2018 and 2019
Painting is my "happy place". I love having fun with the canvas. The journey to realizing my own unique style has come from within with many inspirations along the way. Whether painting in the studio or en plein air I want to create a unique little masterpiece using different strokes, colors, and shapes. I am passionate about drawing. Painting on black canvas allows me to create a woodcut look to my paintings. My mediums are acrylic and water based oil paint and my goal is to paint an accurate representation of the subject in a creative and fun way with a loose black outline showing through as in the woodblock and linocut styles that I love.
After a 37 year career as a Graphic Artist and Greeting Card Designer I have turned to painting full time. I paint almost every day. I most enjoy painting architecture. Being an artist is the most fun thing you can do. I love painting en plein air and have participated in numerous plein Air Festivals including The Red Brick Plein Air Festival in Aspen, Steamboat Springs Plein Air Festival, The Littleton Plein Air Festival, Boulder Plein Air Fest, and The Telluride Plein Air Festival.
