4 years ago I relocated to this area from Marinette County, Wisconsin, drawn here by my love of wilderness and the outdoors. Since then, I never have to travel far to find the perfect inspiration. I paint primarily in oils and sometimes in watercolors. A few years ago I took up plein air painting; it combines my two passions, art and the outdoors.
Most of my work reflects the trails I hike and all the things I love. Occasionally I paint still-life’s’ and play with watercolors.
Like many artists, I developed my artistic sensibilities as a child, later trained in Graphic Art, and took Fine Art courses in college. I am inspired by several classic old style painters and a few current artists.
As a committed life time learner, I continue to refine my observation and painting skills.
