About the Artist

With the exception of a few beginning classes in pastels and watercolors, I am self taught, finding most enjoyment in experimenting and exploring the medium of oil.  My painting style has been developed over the years by trial and error with interesting discoveries occurring by accident.  Much of the time there is no forethought or intention to the process before starting, letting the images present themselves intuitively.  Other times I work from a doodle in my sketchbook.  Often the painting takes on a life of its own dictating a specific direction to follow.  My preference is to work quickly reacting to what I see in front of me.  Each piece is unique and conveys a particular mood
