As a kid, I enjoyed paint-by-numbers and drawing techniques that a babysitter, who was an Artist, taught to 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, I edited an EMMY AWARD winning PBS TV News Special Report for which I received an HONOR for Editing. Soon after, I attended law school and, years later, retired as an attorney after more than a decade working in a state's court system.
Since 2004, 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; and my study of drawing, collage, and painting techniques.
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 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, wildlife, and the pre-dawn, night sky.
