I am a painter and a master printmaker, and have been an independent artist my entire life. I have maintained my studio here in Englewood, Florida for over 35 years and have developed a good reputation as a fine artist being very involved in all aspects of art in my community.
I make original art every day. My original acrylic paintings and hand colored etchings are in public and private collections worldwide and I am represented by over 20 galleries.
I have always lived by the beach, surfing, fishing, diving, and snorkeling. I got my first boat when I was seven years old and I was raised to understand that we are the caretakers of our fragile environment. I have always been passionate about the ocean. My subject matter reflects my love of the sea.
I am 58 years old, am well traveled and I’ve raised three sons and have four grandchildren. I have an enormous amount of life experience that I’m proud to share.
I teach art to adults and children all over the country. I’ve seen the early years of the art show movement, and with 44 years of outdoor art shows under my belt, I’m pretty sure I could win Survivor if they’d just let me play, because I can build a dry shelter with my eyes shut.
I have struggled to stay the course, maintain integrity, good work ethics and standards along the way. I believe that art is important in every day life and I strive to continue the adventure.
