Making art is how I make sense of this wonderful life. My artistic search for El Dorado keeps the dream alive and gives my soul wings and song. I share these passions through my expressions and your interpretation. I use sketches as the basis for most all works. The first thoughts manifest on paper. The studio spirit then takes over with traditional and solar plate intaglio printmaking, alkyd and walnut oil painting, acrylic, watercolor, wax resist mono printing, digital use of Lightroom and Photoshop CC with a drawing tablet. I still paint outdoors whenever possible. Standing in a field with easel, paint, and canvas still brings out the wild and free of heart.
I have always loved to delve into code and cipher, riddles and puzzles, rhyme and wit. Several works contain embedded clues to other ways of seeing what is viewed.
Art gives us unique visions and experiences to exhort our spirits to a new or higher level. We feel something beyond ourselves.
