I’ve became an artist at 12 years old. During a visit to the Exploratorium in San Fansciso, I watched a women paint perfect but random circles on a large sheet of paper. She used a sumi brush and black india ink. I’ve been filling sketch books and canvases ever since.
I really began to paint during a sketching excursion in Provence with Marie le Glatin Kies, a french artist and author. Her magical approach reminded me that I need not force anything; just observe.
En plain air landscapes are my most common subject, but I prefer to be painting murals; they change a place and make a greater impact. Plus they require my physical exercise.
On my painting blog, you can view, read about, and purchase each of my recent paintings, purchase cards and calendars, and order books and supplies I recommend.
