About the artist

My art works are developed from on site sketching, plein paintings and information gathering. I taught art history and studio classes at a college and this helps form a basis for my art works.

My wife 'Karen' and I both like   gardens and the  Southwestern

United States and they  are  a big part of my imagery. I really like to travel and I gather images from these experiences in various parts of the world.  I also like trains and locomotives so these also are a part of my artistic expression also.

 I do not focus work too much on the actual forms but on the shapes that describes the subject. The power of the abstraction and visual expression is a focus in forming my art works.
