I am President of the Light Chasers, the largest plein air painting organization in Florida with nearly 600 members. Light Chasers fosters the education, participation, and exhibition opportunities for painters who love to paint in nature. We are a non-profit organization.

My only goal is service to artists and the visual arts community. It is important to me that I spend time each day trying to make the world a kinder place. For the last decade I have focused on helping artists. My thank you is the amazing community of artists that I serve.

You can read more about the Light Chasers on our website. You can even join. Itís FREE.
