Artist StatementI embrace the challenge of capturing a landscape or cityscape composition in plein air or in my studio. I enjoy creating fine oil paintings that are exhibited in local galleries and juried shows. I also paint murals both private and community. Many of the community murals become teaching moments for local residents as I like to engage their support.
