About

Welcome to my Studio

I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. I was fortunate to begin formal art study with avian artist Florence Guise, and to continue with her twin brother, renowned seascape artist Charles Vickery, for a total of ten years in their curious, quirky and inspirational studio in LaGrange, Illinois. Later I received additional training at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Living just outside of Chicago afforded me regular exposure to many great local artists as well as the Art Institute’s brilliant and varied collections. Happily in 1987 I relocated to North Georgia where beauty and inspiration abound. At this point in my life, painting and art are inextricably woven throughout everything I do and are constantly in my thoughts, and potential paintings are all around me.

Art Education:
• BFA - American Academy of Art, Chicago Illinois
• Private study for ten years with avian artist Florence Guise and seascape artist Charles Vickery

I use only the finest professional and archival materials, and prefer to paint oils on hardwood panels or premium stretched canvas primed with high-quality acrylic gesso ground. Once completely dry, I apply a permanent archival varnish to protect the surface of the finished painting from UV rays, dust, and other contaminants. This is a removable varnish that allows for later cleaning without harming the paint layers.

My watercolor paintings are done mainly on archival 100% cotton Arches cold-pressed 140lb or 300lb paper using only high quality permanent light-fast watercolor pigments.
