Artist Statement:

My artistic philosophy is simple.  I create work that I like - paintings that demonstrate my love of the land.  I admire those artists who dared to be risk takers.  John Twachtman for his knowledge of light; Joseph Albers for his knowledge of color; Victor Higgins for his brush work; and Richard Diebenkorn for his creativity.  My acrylic paintings have loosened up over the past 20 years, becoming more painterly and less illustrative.  My style evolves toward making paintings into which the viewer can mentally walk. The next 20 years will involve my taking more risks. I am a firm believer in a broad art education that allows an art student to become familiar with art history and the various art movements that have influenced contemporary artists.
