“As an artist, I’ve no formal training. My first painting was completed in the 1970s. Over the years I have continued my art education through workshops, critiques from peers, and independent studies.
I immensely enjoy painting portraits. The portraits are my attempt at revealing, as I see it, the intricacies of the human body, the play of light and shadows, mood and color. You will find, in my albums, still life paintings and landscapes. I work in multiple mediums (oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, and colored pencil).
In 2018 I began doing acrylic paint pouring. Pouring is a bit of art, a bit of science, a bit of math, and a lot of luck! Pouring is based on the weights and density of different paints, and the additives one uses. Goals are: Creating large ‘cells’ or forming a realistic picture, possibly containing no cells at all, but controlling the pouring of the paint to form the image.
Membership in the Fort Wayne Artist’s Guild, and Indiana Plein Air Painters' Society gives me the opportunity to mingle with like-minded people and share ideas.”
