About me

Industry Arts
Occupation artist
Location Northern Alabama, United States
Introduction I have been painting my entire life and I am older than I would like to admit. I have a BSE in Art Education. I did not plan to teach (actually didn't end up teaching),but it was the only choice for a degree that came with a low interest loan for college, and I did get my art degree. At one time I was a somewhat prolific painter and showed in a few local galleries, many years ago. As it goes, life happened and I let myself slip into the daily grind. Years passed and I did not paint. So here I am trying to begin again and still with the never fading passion for painting. Regretting the lost years I am working like a maniac to refresh and gain new experience. My goal is to paint in a fresh, loose manner with vibrant colors and loose brush stokes. Hoping the viewer will see the joy I have in creating my work. Some of the artists I have studied with are, Ken Auster, Kim English, Elio Camacho, Carol Marine, Karin Jurick, Chuck Marshall, Robert Bean, Conor O'Brien, Dawn Whitelaw, Michael Shane Neal, Roger Dale Brown, Paula Frisbe and Pam Paget.
