Several years ago in my home town of Minneapolis I took my first oil painting class and I fell in love with painting. When I moved to Boise in 1970, I began taking watercolor classes and I found them to be just as much fun as oils.
I now currently belong to the Idaho Watercolor Society and the Centennial Art Group. Through these groups I have had the opportunity to participate in shows such as The Art & Roses Show held every June in Boise, and Idaho Watercolor Society shows that are held in Boise, McCall, and Flathead Lake, Montana. I have also been a member of several Cooperative Galleries throughout the Treasure Valley.
Working with watercolors I find is sometimes challenging, but all of the time fun. In 2018 I started working in collage, as a new medium that also presents a new test, but has also been so much fun.
Boise, Idaho I am an artist that works in a variety of media and continually challenges myself creatively for a deeper understanding of all forms of art and its creative processes. I am fond of most art that is thought provoking, conceptually challenging, and strange. Drawing has always been my personal foundation in art. I have had the opportunity to participate in Mystery House Comic’s 6×6 Anthology project for the past three years, and feel that my drawings have evolved during that time, combining a new graphic novel style with my more traditional work. This has prompted me to draw portraits, starting with friends and family as gifts, then moving onto musicians, thespians, and other artists that inform and inspire my work. A successful portrait contains a very real part of the subject being revealed. There is a stillness that I try to connect with in each subject, no masks, just the raw beauty that represents who the person truly is. I hope that my art will confront the viewer’s own perception and incite the viewer to make new personal associations.
