About Me

My Background

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.

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,  wildlife, and the pre-dawn, night sky.
