My background

image165

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 (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 and video Editor informs my work as an Artist.


In the early 1990's, I graduated from Law school.  In 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.

Inspiration & Style

 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.
