My objective in painting is to create, not report, which my patrons and collectors enjoy. My paintings have also been shown in galleries and have won many awards.
Although my vibrant, fresh color has taken center stage in many of my paintings I am always thinking emotion and a compelling composition. I especially like playing with paint and letting it "talk to me". I enjoy painting in a series with different styles, a lesson learned from the masters of contemporary art like Miro, Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, etc. who all reinvented their styles during their long careers.
Among my new series Silver and Black is inspired by very large abstract sculptures with the paintings sized to be enjoyed in smaller settings of homes and offices,while the Abstract Geometrics offer strength with lines, shapes and solid earth tones.
Also new is the addition of custom framing on many of my new abstract and non-representational paintings.
My studio is open this year and I will be happy to show you around. Please call first to confirm your visit, 206-714-3647. Thank you.
