About the Artist

My style is impressionistic and semi-abstract. I strive for a balance between realism and abstraction in all my subjects. As a career architect, I developed a great appreciation for the fundamentals of good drawing and composition. I’m always searching for a unique point of view; something unexpected. Upon retirement, I began painting in pastels for their bold and vivid color, but now I paint mostly in acrylics and oils.

I paint because I have a passion for it, and it's my method of self-expression when I get inspired by the beautiful light, shapes and colors that surrounds me. My images originate from my foreign travels as well as the magnificent landscapes of the Northwest.
