About me

Occupation Artist
Location Vashon Island, Washington
Introduction I am an artist living on an island in the pacific Northwest. For the past year I having been painting exclusively in oils, mostly on board but also some canvas. For a few years prior to this, I painted furniture with acrylics in a style reminiscent of art from Oaxaca, Mexico. For many , many years before that, I was a professional french horn player. Life circumstances made me choose to put my instrument down permanently and this blog is evidence of my creative spirit coming out in different form. I love the practice of daily painting and after all the years in classical music, daily practice feels essential to art as much as it did to music.
