About the Artist

Welcome to my website which features my most current work and samples of older paintings.  I work exclusively in pastels using Terry Ludwig, Schminkes and Senneliers brands.  I use a variety of surfaces such as Canson Mi-Teintes and ColorFix; both sanded and smooth papers.   I paint plein aire and in the studio and also accept commissions.     

My philosophy is paint what you like and have fun.  Therefore my subject matter focuses on landscapes, bold florals and most recently I have taken up painting roosters again.  Living in Colorado provides me with a wealth of subject matter for landscapes but I also enjoy creating paintings based on my travels across the country and around the world. Those trips allow me to get up close and personal with new flowers and vegetation which inspire my floral paintings.  

Please call me at 303-947-3787 if you are interested in a painting or would like to create one together!
