Artist Bio

Local Md, Eastern Shore artist. Retired. Recaptured my love for drawing and painting when I finally had time to indulge myself:) I started taking classes at the Art Academy in Easton, Md. I am a member of the Art Academy, KIFA, Chestertown River Arts and St. Michael's Art League. I participate yearly in the banner competition in St. Michael's, Md., enjoy continuing art classes and local paint-alongs and plein air painting.  Work primarily in oil but also pastel and graphite, mostly landscapes and still life but occasional portraits.I love to capture the feeling and the beauty of places and things that I see and touch.  I have been driven to capture the essence of my surroundings. The sky fascinates me at sunset. The spectacular colors that splash across the heavens are one of the most beautiful gifts we have been given. Taking oil paint and putting it on a canvas and watching it form something I have seen takes me back to that place and allows me to experience the joy I felt in being there. I find great satisfaction  in seeing something materialize on the canvas that actually looks nice.  I love to catch the wind in the trees, the motion in waves, wind in the sails, butterflies in motion, sun on a sidewalk, expressions  on a face. Painting is my hobby, my family is my life:)
