Lilacs on a Box with Quilt

30x34 oil

My early formal studies focused on figure/life drawing and painting. Oil is my favorite medium. I like to paint people/figures, animals and still life subjects. I also do portrait commissions. Ongoing informal studies include workshops in various media such as pastel, pencil, watercolor, ink and life drawing.

As an artist and arts advocate, its been my pleasure to see a lot of artistic growth in this area of the country, with increased appreciation and patronage for the arts in this region. As long as I live, I  will be an artist, an art student and teacher, always grateful for the experiences.
