I live and work Central Colorado. My artistic journey started early in life when my mother delivered a set of tempera paints to my room. The process of mixing two primary colors to form a third secondary color was magical. I graduated from the School of Architecture at Auburn University with a degree in Interior Design, a field I pursued for 25 years. My time was spent designing professional and commercial spaces in conjunction with various architectural firms before becoming an independent consultant. During this time, I remained active in the art field using my design senses in 2D expression. I now spend my time in my studio, Apogee Studio, in Salida, Colorado. A continued effort is made to stay informed as new media and methods of expression arise to maintain a sustained inventive technique. Pleased to have work shown at the Yellowstone Art Museum in Billings, MT, the New Vanguard Exhibit at Keep Contemporary Gallery in Santa Fe and Gilpin County Art Gallery in Central City, CO. I'm now represented by J. Vogel Gallery in Dallas, TX. My education/experience goes back several years and is lengthy. Click Here, if more detail is desired.

Tools of the Trade.
HOW I Paint
Stretch cotton canvas on custom-made wood stretcher, coat with three layers of gesso, sanding between layers.
Mix oil /medium with a certain theme in mind. Allow the work to dry between layers. This could take a while and the painting seems to transform itself into something new and unforeseen.
After the unexpected form takes shape, the image is modified, detailed, and sharpened. When completely dry hanging hardware is added to the back and all finished except for a title which often jars me from a sound sleep.
