I have been a Fine Artist living and working in Iowa for the past 50 years. I have attended shows throughout the state as well as the surrounding states. My list of awards include many Best of Shows. On the average I attended approximately 25 shows a year, most of them in Iowa. I was selected one year to create the painting used by Iowa PBS to raise funds. I have had my Studio & Gallery here in Red Oak for 35 years. I have also done many one man and two man shows around the midwest.
I work in both acrylics and pastels. My subject matter consists of Wildlife, Landscapes, Florals and Red Oak area scenes. Although my style is realism I try to incorporate my own thoughts and feelings into every painting that I do. My intent is to capture the personality of whatever subject I am working on at the time. My hope is that the viewer will be able to experience the artwork by transporting themselves into it.
