About me

Introduction It’s been years since I moved home to New Mexico from living 10 years in Europe. I still hear the voices of the living artists and the historical masters of art that I studied with in England, France, and, especially, Italy. After winning a scholarship from the Scottsdale Artist’s School to work with Howard Post .I ended up rushing headlong into a passion with pastels. The freedom I have whilst working in pastels keeps me enthusiastic about painting all the time.My gestural nudes are included on Ruth Block's "Painting the Figure in Watercolor" videos. Bill Herring helps me keep my aesthetic river within its creative banks. Color and composition keep me focused and developing better paintings. There are just not enough hours in the day to paint it all.” AMSTERDAM WHITNEY GALLERY – Chelsea - NYC CEDAR STREET GALLERY – Honolulu NEW GROUNDS - Albuquerque PARK FINE ART - Albuquerque CONNECTICUT PASTEL SOCIETY Signature Member PASTEL SOCIETY NEW MEXICO Signature Member ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE - Avian Ambassadors-Flights of Education
