During my entire working career, art, drawing and sketching were a part of my life. Upon finishing that career, I took a more serious approach to art and decided to do it full time.

I work in a variety of mediums including graphite, ink, watercolors and oils, often combining them. I am currently focusing on oils. My work consists of Southwestern and Midwestern landscapes, still-lifes and automotive and motorcycle portraits.

I have taken workshops in several mediums from many artists, including Wendy Hill, David Drummond, Nancy Peterson, and Mary Deloyht-Arendt, David Flitner, John Horejs, Judy Durr, Becky Joy, Bill Cramer, Matt Smith as well as numerous workshops at the Scottsdale Artists’ School.

I am a member of Oil Painters of America, Sonoran Arts League, Arizona Plein Aire Painters, a signature member of Southwestern Premier Artists and a founding member of the Casa Grande Valley Fine Art Association.

Among my favorite artists are Duffy Sheridan, Andrew Wyeth, David Drummond and Kenny Youngblood and all my Plein Air friends out there!

I have displayed and sold my work at a variety of juried Fine Art Shows promoted by Southwestern Premier Artists, Thunderbird Artists, Vermillion Promotions, Bell Rock Art Shows, Sonoran Art League and Casa Grande Valley Fine Art Association. These encompass shows in California, Colorado, Arizona, Nebraska and New Mexico.

Much of my work is commissioned and is in private collections.

I consider myself very fortunate to do what I love to do and it is a very fulfilling experience. I hope I can leave something in this world to make it a better place.
