About me

Occupation Artist
Location Littleton, Colorado
Introduction Yay! Left my job of almost 25 years and am so very fortunate to begin the new life that I’ve dreamed of since I was a teenager. I work in oils painting plein air and in my studio. I love the outdoors and you’ll see I lean towards landscapes. I do mix it up some with animals, still lifes and life drawing. While not formally trained, I’ve attended workshops with Kathleen Dunphy, Keith Bond, Sherry McGraw and Joshua Been. I study and research intensely both past and present masters. Painting is all together exciting, challenging, frustrating, joyful, peaceful, leaving me exhausted and fulfilled. I’m continuously working on design, value relationships, soft and hard edges, and brush strokes. My goal, in the end, is to simplify, capture the mood, the essence and the emotion of that moment in time. Creating a work that will bring a beautiful statement to the home of its admirer. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about my artwork.
