grown up in the historical farmland of
Northwest Ohio, I fell in love with nature and art.
I have always enjoyed the beautiful early-morning and

My education has been a combination
of college-oriented work and classes with
local area artists.
As a member of the Center for the
Arts of Evergreen, I have studied under Pem Dunn, Steve Tracy
and Betsy Buckner.

As a member of the Plein Air Artists
Colorado, Evergreen Artists Association and the Outdoor Painters
Society I have found like-minded artists with the same love and
passion for painting the world around us.
The works I have created have been
displayed and sold through the Center for Arts Evergreen,
Evergreen Art Association, bookstores in Ohio, online through my network and through
my own personal connections.
I have also been commissioned for
large, complex projects which are in private collections across
States. My primary medium
is oil on canvas and panels.
Art brings life! It
brings life and excitement to me as I create it. The
purpose of my artwork is to express the joy I feel when I am
plein air painting or creating in my studio.
