"Painting teaches me to go beyond merely looking at something to really seeing it. It gives the most simple object new life for me. Being able to capture what I see and feel is magical."
After retiring in 2002 and taking a trip to Italy, I had the time and was inspired to paint. I wanted to capture the architecture of Venice, the rolling hills, and picturesque towns of Tuscany. I began taking art classes at Folsom Parks and Recreation.
Some of the artists I have studied with are Anita Wolff, Greg Kondos, Mike Bagdonis and Ned Mueller. I works in oil and acrylic and likes to try different styles and subject matter of painting. I love to paint landscapes, large florals, still life, animals, and birds.
I'm one of the artists who participated in the 50-50 Show, 20-20 Show and Story Book Show at the 20th Street Gallery in Sacramento. My art has been shown in a number of places around town -- Folsom City Hall, Willow Cafe, Intel Corporation, Z Gallery in Folsom and 404 Gallery in Roseville.
