As I paint and create I am interpreting the
world around me.
My art reflects my love of shapes in space,
handsome and vibrant color, balance and classical rhythm.
Each work is an intrinsic part of myself,
reflecting hours, weeks and some- times years of my intimate
relationship with my painting.
When I am finally satisfied enough to place
my work before the viewer, you will have a glimpse into my soul
and a part of my being.
Be thoughtful with your comments.
Although, I primarily work in acrylic and paint
I occasionally work realistically in oils, a
discipline and an exercise which leads me to a more fluid
approach to my abstract work.
I would describe myself as an abstract
expressionist, painting because I must paint, as I must
spontaneously, directly from my hand to the
canvas. Compositions develop as I work.
All of my work is original and one of a kind. It is my opinion, no work of art is ever
I have painted continually for over forty years,
but I am now able to dedicate my life exclusively to my
Exhibited selectively, my painting, prints
and drawings hang in the homes of everyday people.
I make my work available to those who respond
Why should you buy original art?
Because it gives you pleasure.
There is no other reason.
My Mission Statement
My personal aim is to have my Art displayed where it can be lived with, loved and enjoyed.
This is more important to me than a monetary exchange.
