I’ve enjoyed creating art my entire life.  From a pencil montage of Elton John album covers when I was a teenager to free hand painting a map of the United States on an elementary school playground large enough for at least one student to stand in each state. But living in Anacortes, WA and the beautiful San Juan Islands I find limitless inspirations readily available.  My style explores local color while incorporating a slight contemporary edge to landscapes and the iconic regional beauty.

Acrylics are my current palette of choice and I’m grateful to the many local artists and friends who have inspired and taught me so much. I continue to refine my style and approach to create pieces that I hope spark a beautiful memory for people who enjoy their experiences in the Pacific Northwest.

Art Supporting Art

Local artist Bob Hogan and The Majestic Inn & Spa in downtown Anacortes joined forces throughout the month of October 2020 to raise money to benefit The Bill Mitchell Anacortes Mural Project through the Anacortes Museum. All art sales proceeds from Bob’s show at The Majestic went to the mural preservation effort. The mural project now boasts over 150 murals, the product of nearly 40 years of work by Bill Mitchell, who passed away in 2019. Fundraisers and donations such as this help to keep this special part of Anacortes’ history going for generations to come.
