I came to Cincinnati fresh out of college in 1969, and have lived here ever since.  My degree in marketing got me a job in a dept. store as an assistant buyer, and my love for art led me to learn the skill of retail fashion illustration, a field where I made a career for 20 years.  Then, I met painting, and fell in love with color.

At my best, I paint intuitively and fearlessly;  I do not tiptoe  through a painting.  I see and paint shapes and patterns in all my work, and am excited most in those borderlands where fashionable women or streetside cafes molt into splashes of color, and where splashes of color make sense and come alive.  This blend and balance of representation and abstraction continues to fascinate and challenge me.
