About Me

My Background


My formal art training includes the Art Instruction Schools of Minneapolis, and a Minor degree in Art from MacMurray College. 

My Medium


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 Inspiration


  My goal in painting is to transform "actual 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.  I often create works as a compilation from several photos.  I add accentuated color for attracting more interest in the subject.
