Key West , Florida - United States
Acrylics - Other/Misc.

I have lived in the fabulous Florida Keys since 1988. My colorful, tropical acrylic paintings capture the flavor of the Keys.
I paint primarily en plein air as there is something special about painting on site that enables me to get the feeling of a place on canvas.
Although I am most well known for my paintings of conch houses and Keys landmarks, I enjoy painting landscapes, still lifes, nature and whimsical topics such as Fantasy Fest.
Please visit my website at to see my full range of paintings. I also have prints available as well as tiles, notecards, and a CD that I designed the artwork for.
I accept commissions and will be happy to paint your favorite house, boat or whatever you like.

A Key West Artist's life
So many people visit Key West and discover its special enchantments. They are often curious about what it is really like to live in the "southernmost" city. I haven't blogged before, but I want to try to give people a feeling about what it is like to live in this funny, quirky town. If you have any questions, ask away!

well, sadly, the clouds from "grow wings" is from a magazine clipping. I need to go outside and paint the clouds more. I will add them to pictures often but never realistically. I have been meaning to do this though. It's nice to meet another person who pays attention to the sky.

You have captured the clouds well in "The end of the dry season". Fully showing the beauty of clouds is a hard task. I still haven't been able to do this. As soon as I can I will feel more successful as an artist. I commend your clouds!
