I am a native Houstonian and have studied art at a number of places including the University of Texas at Austin, The Glassell School, the Art League of Houston, and the Konigs Schule in the Hague, the Netherlands. I have studied with Steve Parker and William Kalwick.
My art training has a foundation of traditional methods. My favorite artists
include John Singer Sargent, Edouard Vuillard, Pierre Bonnard, Richard
Diebenkorn, and Van Gogh. And Pierre-Auguste Renoir for the absolute
charm in his paintings.
I find people to be the most fascinating subjects and above all they are my favorite subject to paint. I paint from life regularly. I believe we are all blessed with some form of creativity. I feel fortunate to have discovered my gift and have the time to pursue it.
