                                Artist Statement

I've been painting for about 22 years. I'm mostly self taught, but I have taken selected classes at Pacific Northwest College of Art and Marylhurst College, and have attended numerous painting workshops conducted by leading local and nationally known artists.  I also belong to a professional critique group which is a constant source of feedback and inspiration.

I've won several awards in shows and competitions, the most recent ones being Best of Show in the Columbian Artists Association Spring 2007 Show in Longview, WA and Third Place in the 2007 Artist Colony International Online Exhibition.  I've also earned signature membership status in the Northwest Watercolor Society and active (juried) memberships in two other northwest societies.  At present I am represented by three art galleries in Oregon and Washington.

Currently I am working with both acrylic paint and watercolors.  I enjoy experimenting by priming my painting surfaces with  media such as acrylic gel and gesso to create interesting textural effects which can sometimes suggest unexpected directions for a painting.

When people learn that I am an artist, they sometimes ask "what" I paint.  In fact, the process of painting is more interesting to me than any particular content, so I have found myself venturing into abstract as well as representational painting, and allowing my imagination and sense of humor to influence my work.   Please click on "Gallery" to  see samples of my variety of content and styles.  Feel free to comment or ask questions via email.

Thanks for stopping by.
