How did you hear about us?

I joined one other social group and at my first meet-up about a week ago one of the members suggested I join an artist social group.

What would you like to see or gain from this group?

A group of friends share their views on work in "our" studios and the community and to make friends. My closest friends are in Salem (one is also an artist) so I really would like to simply get to know people here in Portland with similar interests.

What are your artistic goals?

I am currently creating a new body of work with the hopes of entering competitions and eventually submit my work to galleries in Portland and around Oregon as well as possibly Seattle.

Which type of artistic endeavors do you enjoy?

I am an oil painter first and foremost and I am a representational painter. I use digital photography to capture imagery and then I collage/design the photo images as my sketch and paint my images from that sketch.

Favorite Artist(s) and/or Movements?

Even though I follow many contemporary artists I always return back to Vermeer for his use of light and Van Gogh for his use of color (and how prolific he was!).


I'm an oil painter (BFA/MFA in painting) and a special education/gifted ed teacher (substituting in Portland). I moved here over the summer and I want to meet other artists to establish friendships and become part of the a Portland artist community.
