My painting activities began over sixty years ago, but even before that I was drawing and sketching for as long as I can remember. I am a self-taught artist, but I have studied with a number of nationally-known watercolor artists.
Besides producing artwork, I am also an instructor. I have taught numerous watercolor and sketching classes in Michigan and Arizona, and have held many workshops. Private instruction can also be arranged.
My home and studio are located near Grand Rapids, Michigan. I frequently travel to Arizona, and have also traveled extensively throughout other areas of the United States and Canada, as well as overseas. As a result, my paintings show scenes from Michigan, the American Southwest, and many worldwide travel locations.
My work has been presented in various shows in Michigan, and I have had several one-man shows in Arizona, all of which have been very successful. I have repeatedly served as Artist in Residence at the Franciscan Life Process Center in Lowell, Michigan, and am a member of Grand Valley Artists, Inc. Many of my paintings and sketches are in private collections in Michigan, Arizona and other states, as well as various other locations worldwide.
No events or shows are scheduled at this time. New items will be listed as they become available.
