About The Artist

Artist Statement

 

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.
