I come from a family of painters and sculptors. As an original member of Amapola Gallery, I’ve been active with our co-op since 1980. Over the years I have been juried to show some dozen mediums. The constants to my art are strong lines and brilliant color. Each work is a meditation. Most of my paintings are formed with several layers of pigment, often a mix of media. Many focus on trees. The acrylic abstracts are a visual stream of consciousness, pure creativity. While I appreciate realism in art, I have no interest in presenting it in my work.
