Do You Have Something to Say?
"Red Skirts" Sold   When I declared that I was planning an art blog to round out my on-line presence, my niece, Lisa, said, "Do you have anything to say?".  I wasn't sure.  Don't all artists have something to tell the world through their art?  But am I an a...

The Value of Quiet Time
I know that meditation is good for the mind, soul, and body.  I've read about it in a hundred books.  For me, it's easier said than done.  Like so many of my friends who have been on the 9 to 5 treadmill for years, being your own boss and working from home ...

Story
Tagline
Contemporary landscape and figurative oil painter.
Introduction
I moved to Arizona from Iowa in 2013 with the intention of making art my career.  I happened to get off to a great start when I joined the Gilbert Visual Art League and met so many terrific people who are wonderful artists.  In addition to paintings in oil and watercolor, I have painted public and private murals.  My latest public mural is on the side of the American Legion building in Gilbert, AZ.  It was a very exciting project and I'm looking forward to sharing my art on a large scale through additional projects in the area.  I am currently a member of the San Tan Valley Artists and the Arizona Art Alliance.
