“Nature continues to be the ultimate inspiration for my paintings"
During my career as an artist (40-some years) I have studied a little of everything, and continue to be challenged. Change is a constant happening - it leads one's creativity to expand and grow. My paintings are spontaneous. They begin as an abstract, and sometimes evolve into landscapes, seascapes, or still life, but nevertheless remain mostly abstract. My most recent paintings have been acrylics, collage, and encaustics. Working on canvas with strong colors and an uncomplicated palette has given me new freedom in composition and the use of space.
