Welcome to my online gallery!  Wherever I happen to be, I delight in painting the world and people around me, recording a few anecdotes and teaching workshops along the way. I paint primarily figures and landscapes “en plein air” or in the studio, using oils, acrylics, casein or watercolors. These pages share some of my paintings as well as a few stories of my experiences as an artist. Enjoy your time here and feel free to contact me to inquire about a painting, commission or workshop ~ or simply to say hello!
