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.
