Artist Bio

I’ve been painting most of my life although my career was in agricultural research. Being an avid gardener, nature buff, and outdoor enthusiast I am most inspired by close encounters with wild things.

There are moments in life that capture our attention and it is these moments that I try to capture on canvas. The resulting painting is meant to be only an impression, not an exact rendering of the subject.

As Georgia O’Keefe once said ‘I know that I cannot paint a flower. I cannot paint the sun on the desert on a bright summer morning but maybe in terms of paint color I can convey to you my experience of the flower or the experience that makes the flower of significance to me at that particular time.’
