“I am retired and doing art full time after years of fits and starts. After high school art I studied art and photography.
My work flows back and forth between abstract and representational. Most times I’m trying to find ways to take landscape to the edge of abstraction in pastel. My abstract oils are purely an energy and emotional release. In both cases I use music to disconnect from the world and focus on the emotions I have the sound. My intent here was to just make marks and see what I could find in them. No plan, just reactions until I saw something to form a design.”
