“I am grateful to dwell daily in the world of creativity.  My creative day is filled with reading, writing, observing, postulating, tinkering, constructing, designing, drawing and painting.  Within painting, the concepts of time and simplicity are two of my main interests and inspirations.  Today, they are represented in my work in “the Cricket Tree Series”, “the Beach Series”, and “the Facade Series”.  These ideas make me feel the contentment and solitude of simpler, happier times.  Once the image is chosen, I tend to concentrate and tinker with the color, texture, and from with “chance” being the important ingredient.  It’s far more exciting not to know exactly where I’m going with it all and in the end, discover the finished artwork.
