About Me

First a note to my amazing circle of collectors:

Your support and generosity over the past 20 years means more to me than you can imagine. It is because of your faith in me (and your incredibly good taste) that I have been able to continue creating the art that I love!

About my journey (and why the pieces are so different from one another):

When I began my journey as an undergrad, I was interested in the technical aspect of art. Photo-realism was very popular at the time and I tried to make my work indistinguishable from a photograph. It was a real challenge and I’m still rather fond of some of the pieces I created in that style, but they all seemed a little too sterile. Especially since as I studied in Buffalo - right across the street from the Albright-Knox Museum with it’s wonderful collection of Modern Art. Clearly there was more to do!

After graduating, I began to experiment with styles. I enjoyed Fauvist colors first, then played with chiaroscuro lighting effects and a little impressionism thrown in every now and again. Once again I ended up with some works that I enjoyed but none of it was quite right.

I did my Master’s Degree on a part time basis. It was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life! The Professors were so supportive and helpful to my emerging career, and I will never be able to thank them enough, especially my Graduate Advisor, Rosemary Imhoff and painting Professor Natasha Hopkins. They helped me take the leap into the highly abstract style that just fits! Confirmation that this was the right place for me came when my first abstract, “Lookinglass” beat out over 2,000 entries and was included in the Batavia International Exhibit!

From that point on I have been concentrating on my abstracts (and loving it!) Though I have been known to occasionally go back and do something a little more conformist for my dear friends and collectors when asked (yes Doc, Richard and Joann I am talking about you!)

So that’s it really. I’m cheerfully painting my abstracts, showing them a few times a year, getting newspaper write-ups on occasion and thoroughly enjoying life……thanks to a wonderful circle of friends!!
