I paint the landscapes that I live within. Up here the sky breathes, and sometimes settles very nicely on the ground. The paintings range from abstractions to literal depictions. I present originals, prints, and home decorative items.
I am a painter’s painter. I am most interested in the paint films – application, abrasion, removal and manipulations. Although my work can seem very different from piece to piece, it’s really all about the paint – how I can push it – and my response when it surprises me.
Oregon and the Northwest has been my muse since before I ever landed here more than 3 decades ago. Where I grew up trees existed only if people planted them in their front yards. That’s probably why trees populate so much of my home and my paintings now.
I’ve raised my family here, and in turn, the region has raised my artwork.
