My professional career began in 1973 when I earned my MFA. In my early works I felt my paintings where an illusion and only seemed to partially fulfill my desire for a more complete expression. Now my works explore the interplay of transitional reality and abstract concepts in oil on canvas and digital photography.
It is provocative to me to express myself through physical, intellectual, and spiritual endeavors . My art offers me the forum for this expression. The viscosity of paint gives scale, while it's liquid flow carries the emotions of a poetic heart. The formation of shapes into composition express a thoughtful logic and the unity of all elements breaths life into the spirit of the work. In addition explored shapes and content fits with my digital images.
Pursuit of excellence in design, craftsmanship and expression are my artistic goals. To create images that provoke thought and communicate our connection with nature, spirit, self and each other.
