About the artist...
I see in these new paintings the road map between my artistic past and my creative future. Perhaps it is only fitting to excavate deeply into a life of travel, nature and poignant visual experiences at the midpoint of my fifties and after 20 years as a professional artist.
My love of travel offers an opportunity for adventure. Exploration satisfies my need for escape and refills my vision and sense of beauty. It also helps me see someone else’s point of view. It opens up many new windows and doors, both literal and figurative, to the curious mind. Even the planning of a trip conjures the imagination, much like the creative practice stirs the pot of invention.
The paintings are meant to be experiential. I take a journey with each piece I make. Sometimes I invent a place, other times a breeze of the sea sweeps over me and reminds me of a beach I have stood upon or an ocean I have surfed.
