Painting naturally.

Art has always been a part of my life. My parents met in art school and raised me with a high regard for nature, art, color and shapes. In 2014 my focus shifted from commercial art, back to oil painting and fine art.

After 30+ years as a corporate art director, I'm now drawn to create art that rests the eye and illuminates the poetry of nature. I enjoy painting from life as well as studio painting, working fast and loose with emphasis on feeling and emotion versus realism. I delight in interesting shapes and intense colors hinting form and light. My inspiration is the wild and unpredictable nuance of natural landscape, and life.

I photograph all of my subjects, as well as sketch them in marker, pastel and occasionally paint plein air studies. Some of my work is painted on archival quality french-milled oil paper. Others are painted on canvas or canvas board. 

 

I am currently looking for complimentary venues or opportunites to show my work to those who yearn to look into wild views.

 

EDUCATION:

My art education includes studies at Syracuse University, Parson's School of Design, The Colorado Institute of Art and The Art Student's League of Denver. I am currently studying with Doug Dawson and Clyde Steadman.
