About The Artist
Currently, my works are both abstract and representational. Color always takes center stage in my paintings, and the natural world is an important source of inspiration.
I started painting many decades ago, but the demands of business and family kept my brush quiet. Recent studies with Chester Arnold and others have reignited my passion, and I am able to spend many hours with paint and canvas.
My early formal education and training as a microbiologist helped develop a fine visual discrimination know-how. In later years my printing and graphic arts company tuned my eyes to design and color relationships. I have found this unique set of skills invaluable in developing my fine arts process.
