Was fortunate to live across the street from a professional artist in grade school. She took 3 of us in 1st grade and taught us a lot about art for the next 6 years.
I attended the Cranbrook Institute of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. I took art class there throughout junior high. I have not oil painted for over 50 years and just got back to the easel 1 1/2 years ago.
I love to paint any landscapes, but in particular mountain scenes. I have hiked extensively in the Eastern Sierras and Sawtooths and this gives me inspiration.
