ARTIST STATEMENT

 My father was an Architect who designed Churches. He also designed a succession of homes for his family to live in. All had stained glass. if I was home sick from school, I would lie on the couch and contemplate the stained glass for hours, finding an endless number of stories and adventures in the largely abstract images.

 As an Artist, I try to paint with simple organic forms and brilliant color, and I am most satisfied when things emerge from a painting that I didn’t include intentionally. Many of the paintings develop a consciousness after I have finished with them.

I’ve attempted to paint in many other styles, but my hands only want to do THIS work, and refuse do to any other.

Directions: Coming from the North on on Highway 75, turn left at the Oasis service station, then take the first left. We are the next to the last house on the right. There’s a white picket fence.
