I have spent most of my life raising a family and working in the field of accounting and management. When time permitted, I dabbled in various art forms such as wheel thrown pottery, drawing, sewing, stitchery and other arts and crafts. I took art classes where and when I could.
After retirement I began painting with watercolors, studying with Mary Tomaskevitch, Helen Shafer Garcia, and Rich Stergulz and taking various workshops with other artists. After a time I began painting with oils and found the depth of depth of color and freedom of expression oils allow to be enticing. I would call my works impressionistic representations of ordinary subjects and I hope that the viewer can find a story within my paintings, though it may not be the same story that I see. I draw inspiration from many things, but it is the light within a scene that captures my imagination.
