In the studio

I took classes at Michael Schliefke’s studio two times per week for four years until he moved to Kansas City.  I am now painting on my own at home in my art studio, a converted guest bedroom that continues to do double-duty.  I have a large project table where I keep my palette and tools, and my easel stands in a corner.

The paintings on display below are my body of work to-date and are displayed in chronological order.  It’s fun to see the progress!
