San Rafael, CA
I grew up in rural Maryland in the 1950s and 60s. We were very fortunate to have an accomplished artist as a neighbor. She taught weekly painting classes for children in my neighborhood. We were quite young and painted with oils and sketched outdoors. Helen was a remarkable individual and a lasting gift to us all.
I took classes in painting and sculpture in my early 20s. I painted in acrylics, mostly from dreams but also from images from my surroundings. Over the many years since I have always sketched and dabbled but did not engage fully until about five years ago. My paintings are primarily in oil although I like working with egg tempera.
