Working on site, or from sketches, photos, memory and imagination, I make paintings that reflect the rural and natural beauty of the country side where I live.  I often combine different scenes, rearrange trees, or omit something that doesn’t appeal to me.  I paint to capture a feeling, the sense of place.


My studio is in the old Waterloo town hall, overlooking the Faville Grove Audubon Sanctuary and the Crawfish River.  The view to the East includes acres of restored prairie, an oak savannah, the river, and above the rising sun and moon. It is open to the public during our annual Fall Art Tour, the fourth weekend in October, and by appointment.
