Thank you for visiting my online gallery. I live and paint in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. From my home overlooking Beaver Lake I am touched daily by the ever-changing amazement of nature. We get storms here that rock the house and light the night sky like strobes at a rock concert. We get soft snows that blanket and soften the rugged stone outcroppings. And we get falls riddled with as many colors as Joseph's proverbial coat. As a mixed watermedia landscape artist who loves color, there's hardly a better place for inspiration. But I love the southwest, too, and do a good deal of painting in the Rockies, mainly Colorado, and in New Mexico and Texas. To capture the light, I use watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein, charcoal and pastel in any and all combinations. I'm always trying different things to be as accurate to my perceptions about nature and the changing light and seasons as possible. My original work is available through this website and at Lake Shore Cabins Gallery on Mundell Road on Beaver Lake. Please contact me if you would like more information.

First National Bank Opening
Sometime in Feb., 2007, my work will be included in the opening of the First National Bank of Northwest Arkansas in Bentonville. Though I don't have a lot of information to share at this point, stay tuned! It's going to be an exciting opening.
Lake Shore Cabins gift store features work
With one of the best views of Beaver Lake anywhere, Lake Shore Cabins Gallery, store and office opened its doors in late July, 2005. Located on Mundell Road off of Hwy. 187 near the dam, the beautiful log building features a new office and store plus a suite on the top floor with magnificent views of the lake. My work, including originals, prints, framed prints and books, is featured along one wall. Other artists include locals Jim Maris, who carves Ozark birds, and Kristy Braswell, who makes original journals. Owners Donna and David Braswell have also included cabin furniture and other decor. Come by and take a look! In the depths of winter, it's always nice to contemplate spring. Right now, I'm looking forward to another wonderful White Street Walk, the third Friday in May. I'll be at 10 White Street once again. More later! Then, starting May 21 and running through the 25, is the Second Annual Eureka Springs Plein Air Festival, which includes four days of paint-outs in and around the town. I participated last year and deeply enjoyed the comraderie, the professionalism of the Eureka Springs School of the Arts workers who arranged everything from speakers to presentations and, last but not least, the challege. Look for me there again this year! For more information, check out www.essa-art.org.
