Plein Air Paintings
I have always loved painting and dreamed of becoming an artist. After teaching successfully as a professor of education at a local university for 20 years, life took an unexpected turn due to a sudden health problem. It was then that I took up painting again as my escape and therapy. The deep love for art within me was reignited. Through art classes, workshops, reading, and most importantly, painting, I am finally fulfilling my childhood dream.
I enjoy painting in oils both en plein air and in my studio. I am attracted to the natural beauty around us, particularly seascapes and landscapes along the central coast. My favorite painting subjects are found along the Monterey coast. I have shown my work in juried art shows at the Pacific Art League, Coastal Art League, Sanchez Art Center, and University Art. My paintings are also shown at Gallerie Amsterdam in Carmel-by-the-sea.
If you are interested in purchasing a painting or would like to commission one, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.
