I have always been an image maker. My mother noticed this at an early age and encouraged me. Teachers also noticed and in sixth grade it was arranged that I learn the basics of oil painting. Once I was in high school I attended every art class that was offered. In 1979 I received a B.A. degree from Rocky Mountain College and continued with post graduate studies at the University of Montana. In 1986 I moved to Santa fe, New Mexico. I was a member of Artists Equity, Rio Grande Artists Co-op and Santa fe Society of Artists. I participated in marketing my art in the outdoor venues. In 2005 I returned to live in Montana where I continue with my creative endeavors.
I use many different mediums, such as acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink and pastels when I create various landscape paintings for sale. I find that working with a variety of mediums helps me to keep an open channel to my imagination and the creative process. I hope that you will take your time to browse the artist gallery in order to find those original paintings for sale that appeal to you.
I enjoy spending time outside observing nature. The landscape is often my subject of choice. I am fascinated by the design natural patterns create and by the play of light and shadow. Charles Burchfield was one of my early heros.
