I am mostly a self-taught artist, whose artistic expression has been enhanced by attending a variety of workshops and classes and experimenting with a wide variety of techniques, subject matter, and media over the last 40+ years.
Additionally, my work has been greatly influenced by 15 years of overseas living, travels both at home and abroad, personal observation, and spiritual growth.
In recent years, my focus and passion have been mainly working with charming or unique architectural images such as quaint villages, rooftops, doors, windows, buildings, etc., as well as with natural landscapes, using primarily watercolor with pen and ink, and sometimes adding other media to the mix, to interpret what I see in my own impressionistic style. This is sometimes accomplished in single, stand-alone pieces, and at other times in multiple images of a similar theme on a single surface which creates a patterning effect.
I have exhibited in both solo and group shows in Bogota, Colombia, Charlotte, North Carolina, Miami, Palm Beach, Fort Pierce and Vero Beach and am currently exhibiting various pieces in a number of local venues as a member of the Sebastian River Art Club.
