About The Artist
These paintings are collaborations. Cynthia Franco and I share
a fascination with the way color works in
human vision and it has lead us to develop a technique of
using layers of transparent glazes to mix colors
optically, allowing light to penetrate the surface and
recreate the luminous quality of natural light.
Time and the flow of emotions over that time are the essential
ingredients. The effects of light are metaphors to
express the transcendent spirit.
I grew up on the San Francisco peninsula during its rural period. I attended the College of San Mateo and studied under Alanson Appleton and Robert Bowman, then later the California College of Arts and Crafts where I studied under Ralph Borge, Robert Bechtel, Roy De Forest, Arthur Okamura and Jimmy Suzuki. Marin has been my home for the past 50 years and I live and work in Sausalito.
