Watercolors have always fascinated me, as have textures. So I sometimes combine rice paper on my paintings. This adds an effect that I cannot achieve in any other way. The theme of nature with which my paintings deal is sometimes representational and other times more impressionistic.
The beautiful countryside of Waupaca County provides me with an endless amount of inspirational subject matter. Our beautiful home and studio near Iola, Wisconsin was my own design and includes gallery space and work areas where I can give individual instruction. I have had my work accepted in over 200 exhibitions in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Illinois, including twelve national, eight international, and ten solo exhibits since I began painting in 1988. Among my awards and honors is the honor of being accepted into the Marquis " Who's Who in the Midwest" and "Who's Who in America" since 1998.
My own studio is named Green Tree Studio, but other Wisconsin galleries which represent me are Koerten Gallery of Stevens Point, Originals Gallery in Waupaca, Tomorrow River Gallery of Amherst, The Wausau Center for Visual Arts, The Gift Itself Gallery in Green Bay, and Avenue Art & Co. of Appleton.
