I have had an interest in art all of my life but fell out of practice for many years. I then became inspired by my artist son and have been painting for the past ten years. I am drawn to the human expression of face and form but also find inspiration in natural and architectural landscapes. Plien aire painting in my local western Pa. area is where you will find me most of the time. I work in oil, acrylic, ink, charcoal, graphite, and pastel.
