I am a professional artist specializing in figurative representational bronze sculpture represented as public art as well as in private collections. I also prolifically create oil paintings of landscapes, portraits, figurative and still life. I work primarily with representational themes and prefer working on location in nature or with live models. I am an instructor for both disciplines for adults as well as children. I am the owner and director of Toscana Studio and Gallery in my eighteenth year in business. Toscana Studio started as a place for children to make art in any media with a strong afterschool program as well as a robust summer camp program as well. I love to share my passion for oil panting and offer several oil painting classes for adults each week.
