By painting landscapes directly from nature and still lifes from studio arrangements, I learned the nuances of color and light on every imaginable subject from the rolling hills of Maryland to the delicate petals on a peony.
From 1983-1996 I taught still life and landscape painting in my studio and from 1998 through the present day I share my landscape painting skills in outdoor plein air workshops in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
I credit my artistic development to many sources, including my B.F.A. from Syracuse University, the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, my experience as a graphic artist and illustrator, various workshop instructors, and my students.
I am a member of the Salmagundi Club, Oil Painters of America, International Guild of Realism (artist member), the Baltimore Watercolor Society (artist member), the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association (artist member), and I continue as president of the Washington Society of Landscape Painters.
My paintings may be seen at American Painting Fine Art in Washington, DC and at the Gallery of CNY (Central New York) in Cazenovia, NY.
