I do...learn...and quite often begin again to create work in charcoal, oil, ink and paper processes. Each day is practice and action, trial and error to achieve a particular end; something that balances work reality with magic. The challenges are endless.

My method relies on classical characteristics of building form by noting patterns of light and shadow. In the classroom, I work to share information to help students understand these principles. Making sense of patterns that fall across an object can help us see the important parts of subject matter - the essence of what is before us. 

Classes are available through my home studio and the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art. I work as a docent with the education department at the Booth Western Art Museum. I've taught as a resident artist in area schools, and had the pleasure of instructing elementary, middle and high school specialty camps. I share what I've come to realize through daily drawing and painting, those thoughts about the process of composition, line, color, form, shape, value and space. It's ever changing - 

Thank you for your attention. Please contact me with questions and enjoy the day. I look forward to hearing from you.
