I paint on gallery-wrapped canvas with Golden artist colors. I use a professional finishing technique of painting on all four sides of the canvas edge. This allows the painting to be hung without a frame. Of course, a frame may be added if you prefer.


Painters I admire: Emily Carr, Fairfield Porter, Gerald Cassidy, Len Chmiel, Russell Chatham.

Artist's Statement

Group Exhibitions

Art is the activity that makes me happiest. I started studio fine arts classes at the University of Minnesota's School of Fine Arts in the 70s and have continued with classes for decades, recently at the University of New Mexico's College of Fine Arts and UNM Continuing Education. Although I have studied and worked in watercolor painting, oil painting, paper collage, ceramic process, graphite drawing, and intaglio printmaking, the medium that suits me best is acrylic painting. It's fast and fun. Using layers of color through the underpainting process adds a richness and depth to each work. I love to see surprising spots of color in a landscape: pink in the sky blue, slivers of red in the green foliage.
