WHO I AM AS AN ARTIST

HISTORY

  • 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.
