I have two favorite pasttimes. In both I work with water media. I can sometimes be seen pleine aire painting in and around Sheridan countryside. Even more often I can be found painting abstract expressionism art in my home. Plein Aire painting keeps me centered in the natural and material world. Meanwhile, studio abstract, reimagine and recreate new pieces from the colors, shapes, feelings, and inventions of the natural and material world. I have lived in Wyoming, Montana and Colorado all my life. This is my home country where I am a member of SAGE. Travels to visit family often take me to Washington and California where I am also a member of the San Diego Watercolor Society.
