"I've been an active painter most of my life, creating works in the realist tradition. I sometimes work outdoors, but I prefer the solitude of my studio where I can concentrate on combining various elements from my photographs to form an interesting painting. Drawing and composition are of primary importance to me, with color harmony following closely behind. I was fortunate in having an outstanding high school art teacher and with her help managed to win a four-year scholarship to the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. There I studied with the late Hilton Leech, an outstanding watercolorist after whom the art center in Sarasota was named. I'm a signature member of the Florida Watercolor Society and the Texas Watercolor Society.

My recent work, primarily portraits and landscapes, have included pastels, acrylics and oils, all of which I find challenging. My paintings have won a number of awards in regional and national juried shows, and have been accepted into five of the Top 100 shows for Arts for the Parks. In the year 2000, I won the Region III Arts for the Parks award, and in 2004, the Region I.
