My art career began over 70 years ago. I love creating harmony and tension with color and strong elements of design. Oil paints and prismacolor pencil are ideal mediums. .Sometimes I explore 3 dimensional work in clay or stone. When I paint, I think mostly about design and how the whole picture balances. I start with a general idea about color and shapes. The rest comes spontaneously as I work out the design. Subject matter comes from my subconscious, but the common thread of my work over the years has been people and cultural influences. Important artists influencing my work are Van Gough, Ergon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Chaim Soutine and African sculpture. My goal is to always work expressively and with simplicity, producing an abstract quality. Each work is an effort to create yet a better work of art in the use of the elements of design. Sometimes a touch of whimsy adds to the fun. I hope you enjoy the adventure of my evolving art.
