My interest in art began as a small child painting by numbers with acrylic. Years went by before my formal training as a student of the late Sidney E. King, renowned Caroline County artist. During that time, he helped to develop my technique with oils. I have been fortunate to pursue my life long love of painting now as a student of the late Carol Campbell, Susan Stuller, Ed King, Hsi-Mei Yates, Ariel Freeman, Johnny Johnson and Bill Harris. Oil is now the medium of choice and I feel it is where my art becomes alive. My paintings showcase scenic Virginia, wildlife, still life, floral and fauna and world travels. I express life experiences through color, light, shapes and memories. I am associated with LibertyTown Arts Workshop, Fredericksburg, VA and exhibit and demonstrate at Studio 10. Also associated with Crossroads in Richmond, VA. Ongoing exhibits include “Everything Gardening” on Caroline Street in Fredericksburg and “D&J Meat” in Bowling Green, VA.
