My background


When I was a kid, I enjoyed paint-by-numbers and drawing techniques that a babysitter, who was an Artist, tried to teach me.  In junior high school, my favorite subject was Art.  

My first career was in Television, for 20 years, as a Film Editor and Producer.  In the early '90's, a Chapter of the National Association of Television Arts & Sciences presented an HONOR to me for my role as the Film Editor of an EMMY AWARD winning PBS TV Special.  My experiences as a Film Editor inform my work as an Artist.

In the early 1990's, I graduated from Law school.  In '04, while working as a Lawyer I studied ART in evening classes.  When I retired from Law, I pursued ART --- as a painter and collage Artist.

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; Art Festivals, juried and curated Art Gallery exhibitions; study of the techniques of drawing, collage, and painting; and an on-going study of Art History.

Favorite Mediums

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

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 the Earth's 'natural' environments and  wildlife.
