I have been painting in watercolor for four years. I have participated in several plein air events, including the Dockside Quick Paint and the Evanston Plein Air Festival. Currently I work full time as an environmental consultant but always find time to paint.
My family loves my house portraits and hand made cards and now I’m is excited to share my art with the wider world. My journey into the creative arts started in high school drawing class. It would be 18 years before I started creating again.
In 2018, I was drawn to the watercolor paintings at Door County Dockside Quick Paint plein air event. This started my journey into watercolors. I discovered the lightness and unpredictability of the medium, and its frustrations as well. I have found inspiration in nature, but I am particularly drawn to buildings and I love to capture the spirit of a house. My wife, also a watercolor artist, pushes me to explore new subjects, and I learn something new every time I paint.
