I have created a series of ABSTRACT paintings that depicts my vision of feelings, nature, places and memories. These colorful works have an eye for clarity, movement, composition, texture and design. The acrylic paintings are painted on board (Masonite veneered plywood) . I often use metallic tapes or paints. Most have an epoxy coating that makes them look like they are under glass.
I have painted my whole life. I received my BFA in Painting from Ohio University, 1975, and attended Miami University’s (Ohio) graduate art school. I've sold my work in galleries and art shows all over the USA.
The abstracts are a newer direction for my work. I painted beautiful landscapes and quilt images for decades. Around 2012 I found a new freedom and inspiration in the abstract work.
My love of color and my thoughts associated with them has totally inspired my paintings. I consider myself to be a Colorist.
