Artist Statement

In my early paintings (1970s) I was often seeking a meditational simplicity.  Through soft sprayed atmospheres I aimed for a light, buoyant experience.

In my a more graphic series (inspired by the Summer of Love‘s 50th anniversary)  I’ve had a most enjoyable diversion for me to play with patterns and psychedelia on canvas. (And COLOR!)
Continuing on with painting right now I am revisiting a double canvas series, cutting into the top layer exposes painted interior layers within.

My mixed media works such as the Globe series and the Action Figure & Toy series are more whimsical in nature and often reference pop culture.
Dioramas also come into play in some of these which invite you to enter intimate worlds.

I’m Thankful for love of nature and the many artists who have helped inspire me in this life of creativity.
