About the Artist

My paintings are in oil, pastel, charcoal, watercolor, and are primarily landscapes in and around Hobe Sound, FL.

Over the years my studies included water color, oil, charcoal drawing and even pottery. My personal style always seemed to lean toward impressionism because you could say my style is loose yet based on reality. The biggest influence on my work has been painting from life.


Artist's Statement

Photo reference credit is due credit "Jeffrey S. Pippen, http://www.jeffpippen.com/" who allowed me to use his photograph for my painting of the false foxglove flower. Pastels seemed to be the right medium for this soft looking flower. Starting with a watercolor underpainting on Wallis sanded museum paper, pastels were applied in several layers without blending to achieve a painterly look.
