Artist’s statement . . . “I paint in oils in bold fresh color. My subjects include still life’s, interior settings, outdoor garden settings and a variety of landscapes en plein air. The ever-present beauty that god has created is what inspires me. I am but a sojourner leaving my mark and yielding to my desire. I can’t imagine doing anything else!
I accredit the works of such great masters as Sergei Bongart, Joaquin Sorolla and Franz Bischoff as being most influential in developing my own use of color, light and subtle grays.”
