I started painting 25 years ago as a relaxing hobby to relieve work stress. I had no formal art training, but joined classes in the area. Nowadays, my artwork is split between representational and abstract styles. I am attracted to the play of light on surfaces. It could be a child's cheek, where the sunlight makes the skin look translucent, or a brown tree trunk that looks like pure gold in the setting sun. The reflection of grasses in a pond, the changing hues in Lake Erie or the purple color in a cloud are all fascinating. The challenge is for me to take what I see and put it into a painting so others can share the magic.
In the past few years I became interested in abstract art to express ideas not easily communicated in representational work. I find it very challenging and mysterious. Exploring and experimenting with various techniques has helped me understand the elements of art better. The media I used include encaustic, cold wax and collage.
