My love of drawing was refined at Art Center College of Design, where I graduated in industrial design in 1979, and expanded throughout my career as an environmental branding and graphic designer.

In the past few years I have been smitten with landscape painting in the traditional medium of oils. Much like my approach to conceptual sketching in a gestural fashion, my goal in painting is to engage the viewer in the completion of the scene before them in their own, sensatory way.

The words of John F. Carlson mirror my approach to painting –“Too much reality in a picture is always a disappointment to the imaginative soul. We love suggestion and not hard facts.”

William Butler Yeats said, “The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

I feel like that is the path I am on as every new vista brings new challenges to interpret that which arouses the painter inside me!

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time” — Thomas Merton

I hope you enjoy the journey along with me.
