My professional background has been varied -- ranging from social worker and culminating in a career in high tech public relations. Practical concerns necessarily deferred applying what has been a lifelong interest in art. I'm now able to turn my attention to this passion and to develop my ability as quickly as I can.
I've chosen to heed the advice of those who say subject matter should reflect what the painter knows best. For the most part, my paintings all deal with my little corner of the world -- everyday scenes in Southern California, extending at times to Northern California and other parts of the West Coast. The vast majority of the pieces are executed in oil on canvas, but recent works include oil on paper, as well. I'm continually experimenting, and my work here also includes, as well as landscapes, some fugurative works, animal portraits and a series on chairs, whose implied narratives and patterns provided more interest to me than I milght otherwise have imagined. Painting is a great source of pleasure for me; it's taught me to observe things much more carefully, which, I believe, is worthy in itself. Other artists concur with me that they've learned to "see" through a slightly different lens and hope they can translate that vision to the viewer. That is my hope as well.
