About the Artist

I have lived in Austin for 33 years, and presently, I paint in my studio in my backyard. I also had a studio and participated in studio tours in Travis Heights. I have worked at the Texas Legislative Council for over 25 years, a workplace which provides a supportive environment for artists and other creative people.Education:1977-1981: University of Georgia, Athens, GA, BFA1986-1990: University of Texas, Austin, TX, MFA Employment: 1994-present: Texas Legislative Council, Legal EditorExhibits:2018 West Austin Studio Tour, Austin, TX, open studio 2012 West Austin Studio Tour, Austin, TX, open studio 2009 Travis Heights Art Trail, Austin, TX, open studio 2008 Hyde Park Bar and Grill-Westgate, Austin, TX, two-person show2008 Original Hyde Park Bar and Grill, Austin, TX, two-person show2008 Artspoken Gallery, Austin, TX, two-person show2008 Travis Heights Art Trail, Austin, TX, open studio 2008 12 Buy Show, Artspoken Gallery, Austin, TX, group show 2007 Travis Heights Art Trail, Austin, TX, open studio 2007 12 Buy Show, Artspoken Gallery, Austin, TX, group show 2006 El Sol Y La Luna, Austin, TX, solo exhibit2006 Travis Heights Art Trail, Austin, TX, open studio

Artist Statement

Art is an adventure, and oil painting is my favorite vehicle for the journey. I paint still lifes, landscapes, and interior scenes, basing my painting on direct observation, photographs, drawings, and my imagination. I often set up subject matter for still lifes in my studio. Though a lot of my work is inspired by direct observation, I don't always adhere strictly to reality. I enjoy altering colors, shifting perspective, and introducing abstract elements to my work.
