My early studies were at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, later in Vermont with painter Robert Frick and most recently with painter Rose Frantzen.
I am a artist based in Winona, Minnesota working mostly in oil paints, pastels and charcoal.The stuff of everyday life is the inspiration for my work. Translating moments in time into painted stories. Capturing the magic of light and color, whether a portrait or landscape, is my goal.
My work has been described as impressionist realism. I love to try to capture the unique qualities of light and life in my subjects.
