Painting in the moment, (en plein air) in front of live subject matter has been my passion for the past few decades. I use the Pastel medium, which is the most permanent medium on the planet, comprised of pure pigments and applied in color layers to achieve the very noticeable effects of light, rich, vibrant colors and depth in my work. I have won 61 top awards in national and international juried fine art competitions, worldwide, since 2003.
My work resides in many permanent collections, perhaps the most notable is The Superintendent of Zion National Park’s Purchase Award in 2015 that put my painting in that collection with Thomas Moran, Maynard Dixon, Jimmy Jones and other notable landscape artists from the past 100 years.
I live and work in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, where I paint daily, but also travel the world to paint. My web site will show paintings from 12 European Countries, Cuba and all over the U.S., as well.
