I strive to present the many varied moods of the seasons and times of day in my paintings. I work mainly by recall and seek to transmit to the viewer the impression of subjects, be they natural or man-made, realistic or abstract.My paintings include landscapes, structural compositions, abstracts, and figures. The paintings are done in watercolor and mixed media.

The Lord’s creation is the inspiration for much of my work.

I was the recipient of “The William Church Osborne Memorial Award” in the 106th Annual Exhibition of the American Watercolor Society in New York City. I was awarded the “Best of Mixed Media” in the 2009 Art in the Barn Exhibition in Barrington, Illinois.

I was also a finalist winner in the Artist Magazines’ 2000 Art Competition and have been the recipient of numerous other awards.
