About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist
Location Swanton, Vermont, United States
Introduction Retired from teaching Graphic Design, and Web Design r at the Community College of Vermont (CCV). I now consider myself a full-time artist of mixed abilities. I am passionate about colors. My obsession with color has led me to painting and in my search for intense colors I have progressed from watercolor, to acrylics to encaustic, to oil, back to watercolor. Most recently I've been working in watercolor. I am also investigating egg tempera.
