Plein air, Oil Painting, and Pastels

Joy, exuberance, texture, vibrant colors and the interplay of light, shadow and passion are what I hope to capture in my work – whether en plein air or in my studio. I am a fortunate artist, who lives and works in Colorado. The mountains and all of outdoors, varied seasons, water and intriguing skies are key elements in most of my work. My style is both impressionistic and expressionistic with the use of color, light, brushwork and emotion in my oil paintings and soft pastels.

My work has been shown in Aspen, Breckenridge, Frisco, Estes Park and Grand Lake, as well as The Depot Gallery, Main Street Fine Art Gallery, Mary Williams Fine Art, Space Gallery, Cherokee Castle, and Outnumbered Gallery in Littleton.  I have participated in numerous Plein Air events throughout Colorado and Minnesota. I am a member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado, Colorado Pastel Society, The Littleton Fine Arts Guild and Roxborough Arts.

My studio is located at artSPARK Creative Studios, 5650 S. Curtice St., Littleton - where I teach a variety of classes – in the studio and plein air.
