I am a painter based in Winona, Minnesota who works primarily in oil paints and pastels. My work includes portraits, figurative, still life, and landscape paintings. My paintings have been described as colorful and impressionistic realism.
In light of the challenges surrounding us this past year I have done more sketching than painting. Paddling on and hiking around the river and lakes in our beautiful SE Minnesota and SW Wisconsin has given me quiet, magnificent, and always inspiring moments to take with me into the studio. Using watercolor and pencil sketches along with myriads of photos is giving me inspiration to paint a river and lake series. Please check my website as I continue to add new work in oil paints and pastels, trying to recreate the precious and beautiful memories that surrounded me in my peaceful paddles this summer.
