I presented my art to the public in 2011 and was encouraged by the reception to make the leap to full-time work as an artist. Enjoying the challenge and immediacy of plein air work, I create many paintings on site. I've earned a reputation for using lush greens and vibrant blues. You may also find me as "SEH Studios" because I use those initials to sign my work.
A self-taught artist with a lifetime of experience, I earned my Bachelor of Arts with majors in unrelated fields. After working for many years and raising a family, I earned my Juris Doctor and practiced law for several years. During these times, I continued to paint.
I choose to work in oil because it appears to be alive in the way that the colors continue to blend and change as they dry. There's something about making that first large "swoop" of paint and then becoming lost in the medium until the image may be called complete.
You may find my art in businesses and residences from Virginia to Maine.
