About the Artist
I grew up in Nevada and earned a fine arts degree at the University of Nevada in 1955, instructed by Dr. Craig Sheppard. Additional art courses have been taken at the Oklahoma City Community college, OK., and the University of Arts and Sciences at Chickasha, OK, as well as many art workshops with nationally well-known artists, including David Leffel and Keven MacPherson.
Art organizations include the Oklahoma Art Guild, 1971-1999; Nevada Artists Association, 1999-2004; and Latimer Club, 2004 to present. I have been a member of the Artist Co-Op Gallery of Reno since 2002, where my work may currently be seen.
Although I have painted and enjoyed the landscapes of the many places I have lived or traveled, my favorite scenes seem to be the endless variety and moods of the Nevada desert, mountains, and lakes of home.
