Biography


Painting excites me. It's sensual, challenging and, more than anything, offers me a way to bring to life feelings of exploration and wonder I first experienced as a child exploring wild places in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  My father was a painter who loved wild places and who showed me a world of raw beauty full of forms, colors and life. I fell in love with that and have never gotten over it. Those two worlds - the world of art and the world of nature - have enthralled me with a child-like wonder ever since. Part of me is still nine years old. When I engage in those worlds, feelings of timeless discovery and creation make for a fulfilling experience I enjoy sharing with others. It's life giving.
 
The most elusive part of the work is and has been defining my vision beyond the ordinary while at the same time maintaining a personal/universal connection. I keep exploring and the exploration keeps expanding further and further.
