I work in watercolor, ink, acrylics and pastel and also collage. As a retired science teacher, homestead farmer and lifelong naturalist much of my art reflects my love of animals, nature and landscape. Other pieces mysteriously emerge from my imagination. I move between detail, realism and impression. In addition to creating art in my kitchen or studio I carry my sketchbook along with pencils pens, brushes and portable paints with me practically everywhere I go. En plein air painting in natural settings finds me in the mountains, on farms, in gardens and even in town. Waiting in airports or for appointments are more opportunities to sketch, capture characters and scenes and practice technique. My daily art practice documents fun, fluidity and attention to form, color, light and shadow.
