Artist Statement:

I am an oil painter. I have developed a passion for it. But first I am a student. I expect that will never change. As a student I am challenged by every element present in a successful painting beginning with the questions of what to paint and why. Following these tricky questions I am faced with decisions about composition, light source, values, color and all the nuances that go with each element.

Striving to improve as an oil painter is a significant goal in my life. If one’s goal should exceed one’s reach I certainly have selected a good one, for it feeds the passion and sharpens the focus of this student.

Studio is open during the remainder of the year.
