As a painter, I express ideas and emotions best with light, color, and form on two-dimensional surfaces. Over more than 40 years as a professional painter, I have enjoyed the good fortune of excellent gallery representation and enthusiastic collectors who have done the talking for me. I paint because I cannot think of a higher life purpose than to bring joy and satisfaction to others through the magic of purposeful painting. New Mexico has given me everything: phenomenal color, amazing light, magnificent nature, and wonderful people who appreciate the geography, the climate and the history. I paint every day and have never tired of learning from each session at the easel.
