I studied at Hagerstown College and University of Maryland in Munich Germany. Painting in oils is my passion having worked in this medium for fifty years. I enjoy painting all forms of subject matter, in particular, seascapes, animals and portraits. I have been teaching classes in oils since 2002. In 2003-2004 I was the co-owner of The Art Workshop in Vero Beach, Fl. Currently I belong to the Artist Guild Gallery of Vero Beach and the Vero Beach Art Club. For the past five years I have chaired their second largest show Art By The Sea. I also serve as a committee chair for the prestigious show Under the Oaks held in Vero Beach every March.
