About the Artist

My work has evolved over the 30 plus year I have been drawing and painting, With a BA in Fine Arts from Flagler, and the start of an MFA, I have also spent a number of years studying with some fantastic artists at the Art League in Alexandria, VA. I have shown my work predominately at Juried shows at the Art League Gallery, as well as several invitational shows. I've shown twice at Artomatic.

 


Artist's Statement

My work is predominately landscape painting in oil, although I have recently been printing monotypes, a medium I have revisited. Florida is my new home, and I see many possibilities for working in different mediums and with a different perspective.
