My background

image1

My brother remembers that as a child I told him I was going to teach myself how to paint.  After I finished my first "paint-by-number" creation I presented it to him.  He laughed to himself at my enthusiasm --- and didn't think too much about my future as an Artist since I was just 7 years old at the time.  Now, he reminds me of those days, back in the early 1950's; and, he's happy for me that I have found my "BLISS"  --- as a painter.


My first career was in Television (for 20 years,) as a Film Editor and Producer.  In the early 1990's, a Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts & Sciences HONORED my work as  the Film Editor of an EMMY AWARD winning PBS TV Special.  My experience as a Film Editor informs my work as an Artist.


In the early 90's, I graduated from Law school.  In 2004, I began studying Art in evening classes while working for the court system, as an Attorney.   When I retired from Law, I pursued ART full time --- as a painter of Abstract and Expressionist paintings.


My ART EDUCATION has been self-directed and has benefited from classes at the School of a Museum of Fine Arts; guidance from a Mentor; an Art Colony; annual Art Festivals, Juror and Curator driven Art Exhibitions at art galleries and centers in the Midwest and out West, in Colorado; ongoing study of techniques of drawing, collage, and painting; and an on-going study of Art History.

I use acrylics on stretched canvas and fine paper.  The use gouache, ink, watercolor, and hand-made papers to create the geometric forms and highlights in my compositions.

My Inspiration

My style of painting is described as Abstract and Expressionist.  Although the SUBJECT MATTER is non-representational inspiration comes from my observations of Earth's 'natural' environments and  wildlife.
