Artist Statement: My acrylic paintings recently have been focused on florals and botanicals. Originally from Grand Haven, Michigan my military service brought me to Norfolk, Virginia where I am a current resident. I am a studio artist at the Artists Gallery in Virginia Beach and an associate artist at the d’Art Center in Norfolk, VA. I teach acrylic painting and mixed media art, participate in local art shows and exhibitions. My signature bold color and linework includes various techniques and subjects.
