About Artist

Basic Information

  • Artist Statement

    I fill my paintings with mental ideas, some visual references, emotions and energy so
    one can enjoy it for many years to come. I have in the past concentrated on landscapes, still life and portraits. I decided to change to abstract because it
    is a much freer way of painting. Abstract to me is much more relaxing and
    can be shorted in time to complete a painting. You don't have to paint what you see, but paint what you feel. You can add and subtract from your painting as you proceed. You don't need a plan as long as you keep composition, color, texture and value
    in your painting. The painting does not have to represent what you see as reality.
    The last few years I have been painting with acrylic. It is a cleaner medium and lends itself to abstract painting. Art is subjective... If you like it than that's all that matters.
