Painting has played a deeply personal role in my life. I am fortunate that two of my most influential teachers were students of the late Helen Van Wyk. Not surprisingly, my painting style is defined by an emphasis on detail.
Over the past four decades, my work has received awards in local and regional shows. I am regularly commissioned to create paintings for private and corporate collections, and my work adorns private residences and corporate offices in over 16 states and 4 countries.
As an instructor, I am committed to teaching others the basic techniques of painting, and then working with them to cultivate their talents and style. Teaching has become integral to what it means for me to be an artist, and I am proud that many of my students have become successful painters in their own right.
