I am a self-taught artist and enjoy painting with oil. I love the feel of the paints and the rich contrasts that are achieved with this medium. I have also explored using India inks in the past and would like to try pastels in the future. I am based in North Idaho, but have lived and visited many places in the world. I am an introvert by nature and content to be home with family. I try to paint with vibrant colors and with a freedom of an expressionistic and impressionistic style.
