Thank you for visiting my website. I live in Arizona in a small town and moved here from Seattle a few years ago. I began to study oil painting seven years ago and found that I really enjoyed it and could still draw and work with colors, which I did while growing up. Recently I began to paint figures and portraits, which I find to be challenging and fun. These paintings that are posted here are all done from photographs, except the graphite pencil sketches. During the past few years, I placed paintings in several gallery shows locally, and am taking classes in a community college, where I am able to paint and sketch portraits from models. I plan on putting some of those paintings/sketches on the web site in the summer. I hope you enjoy viewing these works.
