I have spent recent summers in France, painting watercolors in the

Provence villages and landscapes of Goult, Lumières, Montfort,

Najac, St-Affrique, Carcès, Bonnieux and elsewhere. As a practical

medium for travel, watercolor has been my choice; however my studio

work has included oils and pastels. Artists with whom I studied include

Isaac Soyer, Rufino Tamayo and Stephen Greene. I have also

illustrated children's books including "Mittens in May" by poet

laureate Maxine W. Kumin. Currently in print: "The Best Loved Doll"

by Rebecca Caudill, published by Henry Holt.
