NEWSLETTER"When I go to an art gallery and stand in front of a painting, I don't want someone telling me what I should be seeing or thinking; I want to feel whatever I feel, see whatever I see, and figure out what I figure out."- James Frey
I have painted for many years! I have been influenced by many wonderful and encouraging teachers including Robert Spellman, Jordan Wolfson, and more recently, Zoey Frank. Nature is my muse! My focus has been to be as "present" as I can when I paint. I enjoy working directly and deliberately while looking closely at my subject matter. My inquiry involves how my eye sees and what draws my attention. I thin my high quality paints with linseed oil and apply them to Arches cotton paper that has been sized for oils.
