For years I painted in many mediums and found that expression to be exciting and fulfilling.There is a freshness and spontaneity about watercolor that is unlike anything else. Walter Hook was one of the teachers who inspired me through the years. I was fortunate to also study under James Dew, Robert DeWeese, Frances Senska, Jessie Wilber, Shorty Shope, and Fred Robinson.I am grateful to all of them.
Recently, I have focused on photography.It is a fascinating art form.Through my paintings and my photographs, I want to convey a sensitivity to Montana's incredible beauty and to the everyday details that can so easily be missed, when our busy lives distract us.
Whether the focus is on stones in a creek, on ice-covered pine needles, or on vast mountain peaks, I try to capture fleeting beauty and details and to share those occurrences that I find so magical and rewarding.
This is my eighth year to participate in the delightful Art Show at Bonner School!
I enjoy sharing my art with the people who come to Missoula's Saturday Market, to the HOOKed on Art Show, and to other venues where artists are gathered!
