About My Work:

My oil paintings are painted onto linen or canvas mounted to a board and many are done plein air.  my still life are often painted from life too. Pastel paintings are painted onto special papers that contain enough “tooth” to receive and hold the pastel medium.  They are also often plein air and are framed under glass. Gouache is an opaque water based medium. I use this medium on museum board or illustration board. They are meant to be framed under glass.
