Fine Art

Egg tempera, oils, acrylic, oil pastel, art furniture

Using the 400 year old Dutch mische egg tempera technique, images are vivid and long lasting. Egg tempera uses a laying process created with varnish and a whole egg. Each painting is created using an underpainting and laying oil color over the egg tempera. The layers create depth and 3-dimensions in the piece. A piece can last 100s of years


Acrylic with UV protective coating

Acrylic is used for all indoor and outdoor murals. The acrylic is painted in a layering underpainting process. Starting with blue, brown or green with white highlights added. The underpainting is then glazed in layers of acrylic color. This is a highly durable surface when sealed with UV acrylic coating. 


Portraits, paintings, murals, furniture

I work one-on-one with every client, from a local resident, to a commercial owner or municipality. A good commission starts with design sketches to work through the concepts. I work with the client to pick out color, scale, concept and pricing before I start the piece. I give a clear time frame and finalize the price with a signed contract. I paint the piece and encourage my clients to review progress, to have an understanding of what is being painted. I then clear coat the piece for a lasting durable piece of art for the home or community.


I have been a visionary story teller all my life. I have been drawing, painting, making stuff from small-scale paintings to huge murals to record life’s journeys. I have profound dreams and meditations, showing me images about transformation and growth. I believe a painting can hold an individual lesson for each person to experience. It can help guide a person to a new place of understanding. As an artist you hope for the ability to bring a little joy and a new perspective to the person who passes by your work.

I graduated from Parsons School of Design with a B.F.A in Environmental Design in 1989. Later I went to Spain and Vienna to study the Dutch Master’s egg tempera technique. I have been painting the West and the beauty of the rocks since I moved to Colorado in 1992. I own and operate my studio art space in North Boulder at the Holiday Neighborhood.
