About the Artist / Art

The need to create has been with me since I was very young.  It has guided me through every aspect of my adult life.   My favorite places to be are museums, galleries, studios and the great outdoors.  Painting in earnest  has helped me realize a part of myself that had been asleep.  Well, I woke up and have been painting daily for several years now.

My subject is almost exclusively ancient volcanic ocean rocks and boulders around me. My work is marked by painterly magnification of organic masses, fissures, and facets all in delicate balance to one another. Free flowing water often punctuates my paintings: its presence and its absence.  The results reveal a highly personal and internal relationship with the natural forms I am drawn to paint.  

I make strong use of lines that direct the viewer in what I consider important directions.  Shape is the vertebrae of my compositions.  Color informs  of the power, conflict, and resolution of each scene.
