I live in Indianapolis Indiana. I began to work with pastels, watercolor and oil paint around the age of fourteen.  I am mostly self-trained although I completed a few adult night school painting classes in addition to my regular studies in high school and during my military service at San Diego City College.

About My Work:

Being an artist is about being more aware of the life around us. Noticing the sky, the trees, the colors and mutual arising of both form and space. The painter is a communicator that uses color, form, tone and texture to express and share this awareness. I am a process painter; that is to say that my painting is part of my daily practice toward seeing things more deeply and living more fully.

My art is first intended to please the eye and to engage the mind and emotions. I want my work to inspire emotional reaction, provoke inner reflection, to evoke associations. To paradoxically transport the viewer to into the piece and make them more fully present as the observer of it.

My paintings are often representative but also abstract in that they present a  subjective and simplified perspective rather than as an attempt to reproduce reality. I often do what can be described as “atmospheric landscapes” but like to explore a wide range of representational subject matter. I also occasionally do some non-representational expressionist abstract painting. Most of my work is with acrylic on canvas but I have worked with oil and watercolor as well.
