Welcome! I began painting self taught at the end of April 2002. By the middle of that summer, I was inspired by Pierre Bouret to read and take some classes. So that fall I enrolled in a painting class at the community college, and studied under Kathi Fertig for a little over a year.
Mostly, I enjoy landscape painting and painting outdoors which is called plein air. Yet I also enjoy studio painting from life and sometimes using photos I have taken as reference.
As of April 2004, I started to enter my paintings into juried shows and exhibits. My paintings have won 1st place awards, a 3rd place award and a Merit Award. I also have had solo shows as well as had paintings in invitationals.
I am currently a member of Burlington County Art Guild, the Willingboro Art Alliance, Rancocas Valley Plein Air Painters, International Plein Aire Painters, and associate member of Oil Painters of America.
My paintings are for sale. I am also available for commission work.
