I enjoy painting with watercolors. I try every day to be a little better than the previous day. I enjoy warm cocoa on a cold day and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from expressing in vivid, clean colors a sense of reality that is not present in other forms of art.
I control the brush, the paper, the paint and the water to the best of my ability while trying to express my feelings through art. I am a graduate of many schools but I am (for the most part) self-educated in my artistic endeavor. The paper I paint on comes from France. The brushes I paint with come from around the globe. The paints I use come mostly from England. My skill, training and resolve come from a life rich with experiences and a desire to do my best coupled with the mind created by my parents and molded by those around me.
I am a graduate of Michigan Technological University (BS in Chemistry), Central Michigan University (MA in Business Management), and Air University (all levels of management & leadership education).
I am a life member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, a member of Michigan Watercolor Society and a member of Spokane Watercolor Society. I am an award-winning artist and always looking to the future painting where I can envision perfection (at least until it is completed). Thank you for looking at my work.
