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.
