ARTIST STATEMENT 2016
art: the study and creation of beauty.

I have great love for art, nearly all art, and a seemingly restless spirit that from time to time nurtures itself by learning every facet available about a given medium. Thus, over the 40-plus years I have been creating, I have crossed paths in depth with many beautiful mediums: photography, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, colored pencil, charcoal, graphite, conte, mixed media to name a few. I have studied the elegance of form and the magic luminescence of light, receding, advancing, reflecting, slivers of light.... the mystery of shadows, the drama of chiaroscuro and the tragic beauty of Kintsugi. The fortune has been mine to work successfully in many genres including landscapes, florals, portraiture, still life and abstraction. It is a fantastically creative life.
