Media: acrylic & oil

Artist’s Statement: I create paintings in my home studio. I recently finished a series called the Seven Wonders of Oregon. I started painting thirteen years ago and enjoy creating art with acrylic oil and mixed media. I relish the challenge of recreating beauty seen all around us in nature people and animals. Most of my paintings are started by under painting the image in acrylic then finishing the details in oil paint. I teach acrylic painting at five senior centers every month. My students are ages 6-90 at the Sherwood Center For the Arts. I like creating commissions as well as painting just for the joy of it!
