St. Cloud, Minnesota
I became interested in watercolors while studying at the University of Minnesota from 1973-1977. I received a B.F.A. degree in Drawing & Painting from the U of M in 1977. I have spent many years since then pursuing a passion for watercolor. I also work occasionally with acrylics & oils.
I approach each painting as a learning experience, searching always for the right combination of planning and spontaneity for the most exciting watercolors. I love to do lake scenes, especially Lake Superior. I also enjoy painting small town street scenes and sometimes more abstract work.
I am currently a member of Central Minnesota Watercolorists. I also belong to the Crossings Art Alliance in Brainerd and Jaques Art Center, Aitkin. Awards include: Purchase Award- Century College, White Bear Lake, Merit Award- Minnesota Artists Association, 1997, Best of Show- Art Fete, Burnsville, 1994. Honorable Mention & Merit Awards- Arts in Harmony National Juried Show, Elk River, 2000, 2002. I hope you enjoy my paintings!
