Born in Wisconsin, I moved to
Anchorage, Alaska at the age of twelve. I spent most of my time
hiking, hunting and fishing. I drew constantly through high school,
favoring ships and marine scenes. An interest in music, raising a family and long hours as a
construction engineer left no time for art. I moved to the Puget
Sound area in 1976.
I have been painting in acrylic and oil for ten years. I studied with Ted Pankowski, Steve Whitney, and Leanna Bennet. My landscapes express the feeling of the land and sky. They invoke a sense of place and the mood of the moment. The subjects include scenes from the western states and often feature skies and reflections.
I have exhibited at the Edmonds, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Kenmore and Bothell Art Festivals, the Puyallup Fair, the West Coast Paper show, and the EAFA Fall show. I have been received several awards. My work can be seen at the Kaewyn Gallery in Bothell, Washington. I am a member of the Puget Sound Group of Northwest Painters www.psgart.org, Eastside Association of Fine Arts www.EAFA.org, and I am a member of the board of the Arts of Kenmore.
