|Thank you for viewing my gallery of many watercolors and a few oils.
I am inspired by nature and God's beautiful gifts in this world.
Sarasota, Fl is where my love of painting all began. I started painting in Oils in 1985 until 2000, until I fell in love with watercolor. I needed this challenge and studied the beauty of this medium from my mentors residing in WV, MD and KY.
Private owners and businesses throughout the United States own my work. Some of my paintings are commissioned, while most of the time I paint for my classes and the mere pleasure of it.
I am a Professional Water-colorist and a member of the David L. Dickirson Fine Arts Gallery in "Tamarack", with several sales of fine art original watercolor paintings and prints, located in Beckley, WV. Bernie Hale at Tamarack also carries my 5" x 7" greeting cards.
Beckley Art Group In Beckley, WV is a new gallery where I have some of my Prints & Greeting Cards.
I conducted a Watercolor Workshop @ BAG for beginners/intermediate painters
I am also a board and artist member of TSAA (Tri State Arts Association), and Allied Artist member, both in WV.
TSAA website is www.tristatearts.org
I'm thrilled to have recently joined West Virginia Watercolor Society; was juried into my first show with the WVWS in Princton, WV in June 2011.
I sold one of my originals in an All Members Watercolor Show in Parkersburg Arts Center entitled "My Chinese Lanterns". Thank you to my buyer, whomever you are.
I teach one day, watercolor workshops in Hobby Lobby in Barboursville, WV on Saturdays twice a month.
My expressive, and somewhat impressionistic style of painting is done in a wet on wet style with some details. Mood & Light are crucial to my works.
I own an Art Gallery, The Upstairs Gallery in Ashland, KY where we house 19 members.
Please visit The Upstairs Gallery website with some of our members' art work....More artist will be posted in the near future.
