About Me

My Background

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.     

My Medium

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. 


My Inspiration

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.
