Although I was born in the Catskill Mountains of New York and lived all up and down the eastern coast of the United States, I settled about 30 years ago in Tulsa OK where I have made a living as an oil painter. 

When I am not painting, I am teaching oil painting techniques to my adult students in classes at TCC, Zieglers and Gilcrease Museum.  I paint in the style of the post-impressionists whose work is figurative and painterly in nature.

 

I also participate in the Tulsa Arts and Humanities Council’s Artists in the Schools program and I am an artist in residence at Kaiser Rehab and the High Risk Pregnancy unit through Hillcrest Hospital’s Arts in Healing Program.  I am on the board for Tulsa’s new contemporary art center and helped design the two installments on Tulsa’s only Art Parkway which includes “The Tulsa Spirit Monument.”

 

I have had representation in galleries across the country and for the past 13 years have run my own online gallery which features my work and that of other fine artists in Oklahoma and Arkansas and now, North Carolina.  http://midwest-fine-art.com   Giclee prints and greeting cards of my paintings are nationally marketed through http://fineartamerica.com   I am represented by Doran Gallery in Tulsa.

 

                Subject matter for my work includes landscape, seascape, still life, home portraits, portraits/figures, and interiors. I am probably best known for my delicate floral still life paintings, and paintings of Oklahoma landscapes. My  painting, “Sunset on the Tall Grass Prairie” was chosen in 2008 to travel with Paint America’s Paint the Parks Exhibition.  I was excited to find out that I was recently chosen to exhibit in the gallery in the Oklahoma State Capital Bldg in the summer/fall of 2012.

 

I work on commission as well, painting landscapes, gardens, portraits and still lifes of my client’s collections of  family heirlooms and sacred objects.   I can be reached by email at artistswaygallery@yahoo.com or by calling 918-408-1205
