Artist’s Statement

“I have been a life long student of art. Over my lifetime I have studied painting at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, The Chicago Academy of Art, and Eastern Michigan University. I have also attended numerous workshops and studied with other artists. I have participated in numerous juried exhibitions in Michigan including the BBAC Michigan Fine Arts Show, Canton Fine Arts Show, PAN Village Fine Arts,Milford, ¬†and Studio West in Brighton.

Growing up on a farm in southern Minnesota gave me a love of the outdoors and an appreciation of the beauty of the everchanging landscape. A few years ago I discovered Plein Air Painting. This allowed me to combine my love of the outdoors with my love of painting. When I am painting, I am trying to capture the feeling of being in that place in that moment of time. Hopefully, I can share that experience with a viewer through my art.”
