I received my BA in education from the University of Arizona, and currently work throughout Tucson, teaching drawing, painting, and other artistic endeavors. I have studied art in Arizona and Santa Fe, New Mexico and have worked as a muralist in Arizona since 1991. I have most enjoyed portraiture, drawing and painting the figure, and studies of nature. My passions are working in oils, pastels, and charcoal, though I continue to study other mediums as I continue to evolve as an artist. I am is currently pursuing my art practice in Tucson, Arizona, and enjoy teaching at The Drawing Studio.
Description of Medium
I allow the subject – and the developing piece – to guide my creative decisions so that it is known as fully as possible in the final piece. Sometimes, I will paint or draw the same subject repeatedly to express – and better understand – that which I see and experience. By doing so, I also learn the versatility of the piece – and of myself as an artist and observer.
