Welcome to my studio, my home, galleries and classroom. I am an artist, teacher and coach, and for a number of years I have shared my passion with young and old alike. I began as a landscape artist and still enjoy traveling to all parts of our beautiful land painting and seeing the amazing world we share with one another. I've painted in Alaska and Florida, Maine and Southern California and many places in between and still can think of nothing better than sitting on a beach watching the waves roll in while my easel slowly sinks into the sand. Or standing on the side of a mountain in Arizona, watching the wind blow my canvas down into a sandy canyon. I never know what textures will embellish my painting, but I cherish every moment spent outdoors. I hope you will try it along with me. I also enjoy my Texas Hill Country home when it is full of laughter and fun as we struggle to learn perspective or try to draw a peach that doesn't resemble a banana! Please - visit my galleries and enjoy the colors, shapes and figures that seem to appear out of nowhere when the spirit moves us. Art is to be enjoyed, and painting is truly sheer joy!
