My formal art training includes the Art Instruction Schools of Minneapolis, and a Minor degree in Art from MacMurray College.
I have explored watercolors, pastels, graphite, ceramics, photography, pen & ink, acrylic, and as art mediums. Today I work primarily in transparent watercolor, but continue to create oil paintings.
My goal in painting is to transform every day locations into memorable places. I usually visit the location at several times during the day to capture the desired lighting and/or a specific mood. I often start paintings on location, then finish them in the studio.
