Greetings! I own a lovely Oil Painting Studio & Gallery in Historic Downtown Mesa.
I earned my degree from one of the oldest Schools of Fine Art and Design in the nation, with additional studies at The Scottsdale Artist’s School. Also in Mesa, I operate an Instructional Studio where I teach in a comfortably relaxed and intimate environment. My work is collected in the U.S. and Canada and has been used by an international corporation for its diverse projects. Several of my canvases were honored with public display at the Capital Building during the year-long Arizona State Centennial Celebration. I have completed numerous large portraits of prominent personalities and I enjoy tackling all other genres, as well. Creating artwork for business and civic reproduction as well as commissions and gallery sales of originals and prints has always played a significant role in my career, too.
Art is fun!
I am a member of The Oil Painters of America; The Portrait Society of America; and a proud co-founder of a successful local art association, The Ateliers Group.
