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. "

June at Dolby Chadwick

I have been working like a busy little bee for my art show in June at Dolby Chadwick.  My goal is to have 30 paintings ranging from 3 x 3 ft - 7 x 7 feet.    These are a couple of the paintings in progress - I'm doing a collaboration of interiors and large landscapes.  These are just the under paintings. In a couple of weeks, I'm painting with oils again.

I work in chaos. Sometimes when I go to other artists studios and there's not a drop of paint anywhere, and it is spick and span, it boggles my mind.
