Artist Statement

"Painting is a study of our existence, spirit, and environment, derived from experiences in life. I choose objects that evoke childhood memories, create situations of atmospheric mystery, and bring visual interest through interaction. I’m intrigued by subtle shifts in value and color; yet seek a personal interpretation of the objects rather than a replication. Personality is revealed through the process of painting. Abstract remnants from my process remain visible in the final product. The hand must obey the spirit. "

Dolby Chadwick Gallery

Adam and I just got back from a small trip to San Fransisco to drop my new paintings off atDolby Chadwick Gallery.  I was pretty much star struck by the artist line up and really didn't feel worthy.  Some of my favorite painters show here{including Alex Kanevsky} and they are hoping to also show Anne Gale.  I'm so excited.  Below are some of my favorite artists showing at the gallery, I think the work is superb. Check out the website, they just added me to the list;
