- About -

Our experiences shape our lives.   My love of the visual arts was tempered by the practicality to find work as a teacher. So my pursuit of both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in art education provided me with the academic credentials to teach art in the public schools for more than 20 years. That wealth of day-to-day experience tempered my shyness and provided a window to understanding the importance of the arts.   For me, it was painting.   Painting afforded me the means to examine how perceptions of the landscape shape our interactions with it and vice versa. The images in my paintings come from my walks, camping trips, work in the garden, and general interactions with my surroundings. Technically, color and textures are the most investigated elements in my paintings. At times, my search for more complex textures forces me to invent my own tools.
