Painting has become my hobby and passion since my retirement from the Pfizer company in Kalamazoo. I love nature and with the changing seasons in Michigan, nature provides endless subjects and beauty for plein air painting. My favorite subjects to paint are landscapes and flowers.
I like to capture not only the uniqueness of the location in my paintings, but also the atmosphere and feeling of the surrounding area. Hopefully, the viewers will see and appreciate the same visual and emotional experiences that I had enjoyed as I painted the scene.
I am a member of Plein Air Artists of West Michigan, Battle Creek Society of Artists, and The Southwest Michigan Watercolor Society. I have exhibited my work regularly at the Kalamazoo Art Hops, Three Rivers Juried Arts Exhibit, and many other surrounding locations. I have been honored to have my paintings in many private collections.
