I have lived in colorado for 33 years.After graduating from Art Institute of Colorado in 1982 I became a successful commercial photographer in Colorado and the surrounding states. For the next 25 years I ran my own studio creating photographic images for print media. I have traveled extensively through the area and became a strong admirer of the beauty here. After retiring from photography I found a new passion, oil painting. My body of work is called: IMAGES THAT EXCITE THE SENSES. All of my art is made using oil on canvas.
The largest influences in my art are Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne. As a teen, I spent many days roaming at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Moma in NYC, where I lived in my early through teenage years.
I am a life long student utilizing all resources available and have studied with many painting instructors, wonderful artists kind enough to share their talents and knowledge with me.
I pour my life experiences and learned skills into the crucible to transmute them into my personal style of painting. Using bold strokes, bright colors, and pallet knife I strive to create visually energetic and emotionally strong paintings.
My goal in painting is to express and create a sense of place, energy, and joy somewhere one can dive into and stay for a while.
