About me

Location Austin, Texas, United States
Introduction I like to work in representational art, whether it be still life, plein air or the occasional portrait. For me, the beauty of art is transforming the colors and textures from nature and the objective world into my own, personal vision of reality. I am ever striving to improve the quality of what I call the poetry in my painting. I dreamed of being an artist ever since I peeked over the shoulder of my Marvel Comics cartoonist cousin. He was just one of many artists, art collectors and art lovers in my family who inspired me as a child. I went on to major in studio art at Colorado College but art had to take a back seat to more practical concerns. I earned an MBA, worked in accounting and finance, got married and raised twin boys. As soon as the boys were old enough, I returned to my art studies with new enthusiasm. Thanks to workshops, painting groups, classes and lots of practice, practice, practice, I have sold and exhibited from various locations in and around my hometown of Austin, Texas.
