I started painting in 1990 when a local store held a 2 day oil painting class. I thought I'd try it, and if I couldn't do it, I just wouldn't mention to anyone that I had gone!
I have been fascinated with painting oils from that first day. Since I live in a rural area, I ventured out a little farther from home to take classes in Dallas. I have taken classes from the east to west coast with some of the best!
For the last 8 years, I have studied with Robert Warren almost exclusively. He is, in my opinion, one of the best contemporary artists, and an excellent teacher. He has developed a method of painting that results in a professional looking painting for even those without much experience.
I have incorporated his technique into my paintings, and my classes. I like to paint florals, still-lifes, landscapes, wildlife and portraits. There is so much beauty out there for us to see and record that I will never get to paint it all. But, I keep trying!
I now teach for groups, in local classes, and in several conventions across the United States. I feel so fortunate that I can share my love of art with others.
The pattern packets are available for some of my paintings, and include a pattern, complete set of instructions, and photos.
A number of the paintings that you will see on this site are available for purchase. E-mail me for purchase information. If you want to commission a portrait, e-mail me for information and to see other examples of my work.
If you have any questions about where I teach, please feel free to contact me.
When you look at the world through artist’s eyes, the beauty of nature is so overwhelming that a sense of inner peace prevails.
Life is good!
