I was fortunate in my early art education to participate in the California Impressionist approach with a heavy emphasis on working from life.

Currently I work in the  three art mediums of watercolor, oil and egg tempera.  The choice of which I use depends of the subject , where I am working, and what I wish to convey to the viewer.
