Painting from life is the most fun. Control of the outcome is not as easy as when painting in the studio. Painting with friends is always fun and gives me a chance to see things from a different point of view.
Painting is my passion. I was trained in a more traditional academic setting receiving a BFA, cum laude degree in 1989, and soon after built a successful career producing numerous award winning illustrations for many national publications. In recent years, I have dedicated myself to a painting career combining my love of the outdoors with my art. It is most exciting attempting to capture on the spot the way light falls on a beautiful scene or a fleeting aspect of nature.
