I'm a 2D artist working in acrylic paint, charcoal and pastel on canvas and paper. My primary works are very large abstract paintings on canvas. One is on permanent display on Denver's 16th Street Mall in the Bridgeport Building.

I feel it's important for an artist to have an understanding of color, line, motion, texture and form to be consistently successful. That's where my teaching begins. You can learn the basics and so much more while working on something exciting. Something you care about. I have many years teaching art at the college level and teaching younger kids. I like both but I'm enjoying teaching out of my studio right now.

Painting is an experience, a messy one. Come to my studio and make as much of a mess as you like. If you're a beginner, we'll start with the basics. If you're more advanced, we'll explore where your art is going and what you want to accomplish.

I'm the vice-president of a long standing and successful co-op gallery in Denver. I've been there for 18 years and show regularly at there and other galleries throughout the country. I taught two dimensional design at Metropolitan State for a five before deciding to concentrate on solely my studio work. That's where I am now but I do like to teach a few students now and then.

I'm open to teaching all people and am comfortable with students of any age.
