My background

image176

My brother remembers that as a child I told him I was going to teach myself how to paint.  When I finished my first "paint-by-number" creation I presented it to him.  He laughed at my enthusiasm --- and didn't think too much about my future as an Artist, since I was only 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 an Artist


My first career was in Television 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 and video Editor informs my work as an Artist.


In the early 1990's, I graduated from Law school.  By 2004, I began studying Art in evening classes while working as an Attorney in a state's court system.   When I retired from Law, I pursued ART full time --- focusing on Abstract and Expressionist collages and paintings.


My ART EDUCATION has been self-directed and has benefited from classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; guidance from a Mentor; an Art Colony; annual Art Festivals, Juried and Curated Art Exhibitions at art galleries and centers in the Midwest (USA) and at the base of the Rocky Mountains --- in Colorado; my on-going study of techniques of drawing, collage, and painting; and an independent study of Art History.

Favorite Mediums

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

 The INSPIRATION for my work is the Earth's natural environments and  Wildlife.  My STYLE is Abstract, Expressionist, and Abstract-Realist works of art.  The SUBJECT MATTER is non-representational --- inspired from my observations of Earth's 'natural' environments and  wildlife.
