I have lived in Fort Collins since 1975. My retirement from Colorado State University in 2012 has graced me with more time to devote to my artwork. I paint in the studio and in plein air. In Summer 2017, I painted almost exclusively en plein air around the CSU Mountain Campus area and at Lakes Michigan and Superior. Plein air painting informs my studio work. I graduated in December 2017 with a second Bachelor degree in Fine Arts, concentration in Painting from Colorado State.
