Blue Head Front & Lost in the Snow

I have been painting for over 35 years. Painting, sculpting, & teaching are my passion. My work has evolved from very large abstract-figurative to smaller, purely abstract pieces.  Close examination of a particular piece will reveal texture, hand-prints & even footprints that are part of the process of creation. Buried within many pieces are subtle snippets of newsprint, headlines, & other social commentary that act as time-code elements to root the piece and act as a reference to its place in time.

I find the act of painting akin to breathing, and while I continue to breathe I know I will always have a visceral response to the creative process and be at my happiest.
