Angels Camp, California
I started my painting experience as a child in school. I
went to the California College of Arts and Crafts and then continued painting landscapes
on scene for many years with watercolors. I started working in acrylics and
studying with Gereon Rios of Columbia
College. Mr Rios and my digital camera
have helped me to expand my subject matter to landscapes, people, animals, and
flowers. Now when I paint, I start with excitement and the challenge to
incorporate color, composition, and joy into my paintings.
I am a member of the Golden Palette Art Association, Mother
Lode Art Association, Arts of Bear Valley, and the Calaveras
County Artís Council Art Group. I have participated in the Arts of
Bear Valley Summer Shows during the Music Festival and the Art in the Park Show
in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park. My work was selected to be on the
posters for the Arts of Bear Valley Summer Show in 2006 and 2008. I am
currently showing my work at the Aloft Gallery in Sonora. I also participate in the Fall Studio Tours sponsored by
the Calaveras Arts Council.
I have shown my work in the Valley Art Assn Fall Carriage
Show, the Ironstone Spring Obsession Show, in Puerta
Vallarta and Mazitlan in Mexico .
I currently have work hanging in the Murphys Grille.
