I've been a professional oil painter for over 35 years. My work is collected both privately and corporately in 14 different countries. I have a BFA from the University of Oklahoma. In 2001 I began taking classes on creativity coaching and apprenticed under Eric Maisel by helping artists of all genres online.
I have taught private and group classes through art centers and my own studio. I have found that private mentorship, focused on painting, tailored to an individuals specific needs and goals to be most rewarding.
I've lived overseas for a decade traveling and painting in many areas of Europe. I've recently returned to the states, settling in the greater Austin area, and fallen in love with Plein Air painting.
I believe in a world filled with wonder surrounded by hidden beauty everywhere. Many miss it and others overlook it. It's our job as artists to capture it.
