- Medium : Pastels, Landscape
My work originates from a love of drawing particularly with soft pastels as I have done for the past 37 years. I strive to bring a sense of balance and harmony while faithfully recording the space, atmosphere, mystery, light, and beauty of the landscape. After experiencing my work it is my hope that viewers will see the richness and complexity of their surrounding landscapes with a keener and sharper vision.
I taught painting and drawing at the college level for 31 years. My work has been exhibited throughout the United States with major exhibitions in Washington D.C., Chicago, Des Moines, Minneapolis, Hawaii, and Montana. The work is included in over 70 museum and corporate collections including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American Art as well as hundreds of private collections throughout the country. I most recently was honored with the cover and a feature article about my work in the Pastel Journal (February 2013), a national publication.
