I believe nothing in life is wasted; all our experiences become grist for our art. Without them, we would have little that is authentic and personal — and thereby beautiful — to say. Almost 30 years ago, with competing work schedules and overseas assignments, I exhibited in my last one-person show and basically put away my art supplies. Following 27+ household moves within the US, Europe and the Middle East, trying to carve out a little creative expression in different countries on different continents, I’m thrilled with my newly-built light-filled studio in the Virginia treetops. Now I’m re-disciplining myself as a full-time studio artist, combining what I’d learned before (including as a President’s Fellow at RISD), what I’ve seen since, and what is new today as I craft my return to abstract painting. I crave both intellectual and emotional responses in my work, using energizing line, expressive color, and a mix of materials to build abstract complexity while trying to keep the passion direct and comprehensible.
“Interior Landscapes” is my current series of works. Earlier works in private and public collections. For current work, please enquire.
