Biography


"I have had a love of the visual creative experience since childhood, with art being first a way of getting into trouble, then a way of staying out of trouble, then just a natural part of who I am. My work has always begun with observation and a representational impulse. Then on to the challenge of line, shape, value, and color, blended with design principles and varying degrees of abstraction to arrive at yet another compelling visualization.  A new reality is created, one which begins with observation but proceeds in its own unique direction. My artistic efforts define a body of work that has a very personal reality. Fused into the drawing and paint media are both my struggle and delight in the creative process. Each painting begins as an invitation, proceeds as an adventure, and ends as a gift-whether a joy in itself or a lesson learned, whether just for me or to be shared with others. Then I wait patiently for that next invitation."
