I’m a painter and enjoy working in various mediums. An Arizona native I moved back after living 17 years in Northern California. I love working from life and my work is strongly influenced by the beautiful quality of light here in Southern Arizona. I strive to convey not only the light in the atmosphere but also the light or life that is emanating from the subject, whether landscapes or still live. I have shown locally as well as nationally and offer classes in encaustic painting for those interested in experimenting with the unique qualities of this ancient wax medium.
