My rewards are varied, from awards to sales. Since 2007, I have received awards including: Best in 2D, Award of Distinction, and Second Place. I have also received many Merit Awards and Honorable Mentions.
PAVA has included me in several galleries as well at Ruth Eckerd Hall, and I have had one man shows at Louise Kottler Art Gallery and the Polk State College Gallery.
I find my inspiration in the natural beauty of the Tampa Bay area, particularly in it’s mangroves. I had already been painting for 40 years when I found my current unique artistic style involving application of oil paint and removing excess with q-tips. This allows additional layers to create rich unsaturated colors and exaggerated images, with the final result an abstraction of nature.
I am currently painting directly on birch wood panels, allowing the rich grain of the wood to become part of the images.”
