Artist's Statement

I have always loved to draw, and with retirement came the opportunity to spend more time learning to paint. I especially like plein-aire painting - we have so many terrific vistas here in Colorado. I have many friends who also enjoy outdoor painting and we often meet for a morning of work in the fresh air.

I work in many mediums - oil, pastel, watercolor, colored pencil, and acrylic. My favorite subjects are animals and, of course, the Colorado landscape.
