I paint representational landscapes in an impressionist style in oils. Much of my work is en plein air, although I also work from sketches and photographs in my studio. I am a self-taught artist who loves the opportunity to create quick, uncomplicated images of places about which I have strong feelings. Lately I am smitten by working boats. Workshops by Tim Bell, John Poon, Roos Schuring, Barry McCuan and Larry Moore have sharpened my skills and encouraged me to just stop and paint when a view grabs me by the throat. I recently co-authored a collection entitled "The Colors of Core Sound".
