"I am driven to “create”! Art, a lifelong passion of mine, affords me the means to do this. I was a registered architect for 42+ years but recently retired and paint FT now. I paint to interpret both color and light at a given place/moment in time. Color excites me and in certain light I find it magical…it is nature’s gift to us each day.
About 9 years ago I began an aggressive, self-taught pursuit of pastel painting after researching and studying the medium for years prior to that. I chose pastel as a painting medium being highly attracted to the vivid color possibilities and its’ “dry” application process. I never quite know what the final outcome of a painting will be as I allow myself to become lost in the power of “creativity” to experience the excitement and mystery in painting.Since I began painting I have had 41 pieces of my work accepted and exhibited in Local, Regional and National Juried shows in 9 different states spanning from Oregon to Maine. I was granted Signature Membership status in the Mid-America Pastel Society (MAPS) in 2013.
