When I go into my studio to paint, I enter a special world, away from all daily cares. Whether painting my own projects, or teaching a class, I am energized by the opportunity to be creative in making images. Nearly any subject or situation fascinates me, and a particular interest is light and its effect on all surroundings. Oil is my favorite medium, but I use other media as well. My work is displayed at Quayside Gallery, as well as in my own Magnolia studio.
