Artist's Statement
  I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, moved to Indiana, and subsequently located in Madison Wisconsin where I've lived since 1976. Although I graduated with a degree in art education many years ago, I took another career path resulting in graduating from UW-Madison with a degree in public policy and administration. I worked in the public sector for 35 years and retired five years ago. It was then I decided to return to my artwork.

I've focused on improving my drawing and painting skills by taking courses and workshops through the UW-Division of Continuing Studies, Madison College, Atwood Atelier, and individual artists. My current focus has been learning the classical approach to drawing and painting which was not part of my earlier training. Most of my paintings are of live local models which introduces a level of complexity that has required constant concentration and practice.

Drawing and painting have provided exciting and challenging opportunities for me on many levels. I have also been fortunate to find groups of fellow artists, family, and friends that have been very supportive. Contact:
