 --- started my first career in the early 1970's in TELEVISION, as a Film Editor and Producer.  In the early '90's, the capstone of my career was the HONOR that a chapter of The National Association of Television Arts & Sciences presented to me for my work as  FILM EDITOR of a PBS TV news special report that won an EMMY AWARD.  My experiences as a Film Editor inform my work as an Artist, today.


In the '90's, I changed my career;  graduated from law school; and, while working in Law, I studied ART in several evening classes at the School of a Museum of Fine Arts.  Since then, my ART EDUCATION has been self-directed and has benefited from the guidance of a Mentor;  Art Colony classes; Workshops in watercolor; annual Art Festivals; Exhibitions at art galleries and centers in the Midwest, Colorado, Missouri, and Kansas .  


My paintings have been juried into Art Fairs and Shows (international and regional).  The ANGAD ARTS HOTEL & Grand Tavern, located in the art district of St. Louis, MO, displayed  "PUEBLO" in their formal dining room (mid-2019 thru January 2020).


I  continue my independent study of Art History,  techniques of drawing, collage, and painting.  I hope that my work resonates with Viewers in positive ways.

Favorite Mediums

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

Inspiration & Style

the INSPIRATION for my paintings  evolves from my observations of hue combinations, geometric forms, and energy in Earth's natural environments.

from my Home Studio

I create Abstract; Expressionist; and Abstract-realist paintings...on large canvases and smaller, fine papers.
