|I've been dabbling in oils and taking photos for years, self-taught like many artists and photographers. Then, for the past few years, I've taken watercolor lessons. The watercolor medium is much harder than painting with oils, pastels, or acrylics, although all mediums, including mixed media, are represented among my art work.
I've been lucky enough to have at least one painting accepted into all (except one) of the juried shows of St. Louis Watercolor Society over the past six years. My paintings have hung twice for at least a month each time, at the John F. Kennedy Community Center in Florissant, Missouri; in multiple art shows at St. Peters Community & Art Center in Missouri; at an art gallery in Chesterfield, Missouri for 2 months; 5 different times at Creative Gallery in St. Louis for a month each time; and my paintings have hung five times, for 6 months each time, at the David C. Pratt Cancer Center in the St. Louis area, plus several times (6 months each time) at two different local City Halls (Dardenne Prairie & Cottlesville).
I've also won third prize at two different shows (Oak Leaf & at Framations), and an Honorable Mention at a St. Louis Watercolor Society show in 2012, which is a big honor.
I am currently an "invited exhibitor" at St. Louis Watercolor Society Showboat Kiosk, The Foundry Art Centre in historic St. Charles, MO., located at 520 North Main St. They will be there June 4 – July 31, 2013. Come see my TOWN PAINTINGS.
I'm a member of Florida Watercolor Society (the largest Watercolor Society in the country), St. Peters Community & Art Center, Oak Leaf Artist Guild, and a Signature Member of the St. Louis Watercolor Society.
