Many of you know that I paint mostly outside in the sunshine with my friends at the Gallery Painting Group in and around the London Area OR on Fort Myers Beach in the winter months with the Fort Myers Beach Art Association or the Lee county Plein Air Artists. We paint in wind, rain, hot sun and cold blasts ! Personally, painting outdoors is a total turn on for me ... I can really see and hear what is going on around me. I call it "painting on steroids"! It is not for the disorganized or easily distracted artist. I loose myself totally while painting. Yes, I do photograph my locations so I can return home and touch up my work as necessary.
I am always learning and trying new things. I take courses all year round from people I have grown to love and respect as artists like Neill Walling in Florida , Jamie Jardine, Steve Tracy and Paul Abeleria in London. The fellow artists in my art groups are also great mentors.
Welcome to my website..... please let me know what pieces you like. That will be the greatest compliment!
