My Father was an Architect who designed churches in Los Angeles. He and his close friend and collaborator, a Laguna Beach stained glass artist named Jos Maes, taught me about form, color, and light.
I like to use organic shapes and forms from nature in my work, and let them grow naturally as the painting progresses. Sometimes, when things go well, entities that I did not consciously create choose to inhabit a painting. A happy surprise!
