Except for a few non-credit watercolor classes and workshops, I am primarily self-taught. With each painting I try to place the viewer at the scene. If the scene is a performance, they are in the audience. If a landscape, they can walk down the path, wade in the stream, or swim in the lake.
Many have told me my paintings have a great sense of depth, like they can almost walk into them. My aim is to create paintings that viewers not only feel like they can walk into but are so beautiful and inviting they wish they could.
My paintings are in collections in over 20 US states, Ireland, and Belgium. I have earned many awards and have had numerous one-person shows.
I am a member of Art Saint Louis and Oil Painters of America.
Commissions considered and encouraged.
