I am a self-taught artist living in Rockford Illinois area. I have been painting and enjoying art since I was a child. I have painted all subject matters, and consider myself a “Colorist”. What has drawn me to put paint to canvas is the magic I see in this wonderful world of color. My principle mediums are acrylic and oil. I have shown at Beloit Fine Arts Incubator and numerous galleries locally and throughout the United States. I am a multiply winner of Best in Show and numerous first place awards at Town and Country Art Show.
