Skills and Techniques

While most of my work is painted in my studio, I do enjoy plein air painting. I enjoy traveling to locations in Europe and across the country to paint.

Get to Know

When I view a scene I want to paint, I want to give my impression of that scene on canvas and express with paint and bold brushstrokes the beauty of what I see. Keeping in mind that although I can never match God’s palette, I give my best impressionist effort.” When I participated in a Plein Air workshop with Gay Faulkenberry my style and approach to art changed. The class was an epiphany and a whole new excitement and passion was introduced to my work. Traveling to oil painting workshops in France, Italy, California as well as Florida, South Carolina and Texas, my art has been enhanced by the teaching of renown impressionist artist across the country.
