I'm crazy about pastels! And I'm in love with the process of plein air painting! Add to that being blessed with living on the shores of Lake Michigan
and spending the cold, frigid months on the suncoast of Florida, and it's a pretty good life for this painter!
I'm involved in Paint Out competitions in both Michigan and Florida, as well as shows through my gallery, Three Pines Studio in Cross Villlage, Michigan. I am a member of this organization and am participating in the members National Show in Holland, Michigan.
My paintings can be found in both private and corporate collections.
