My images are derived from multiple sources. The contrasts and activity of my paintings reflect the voyage through a human dominated world with its perplexing and unpredictable realities. I use humor and sarcasm in my art to help me cope with humankind’s folly of self-destruction. Is it possible that human’s privileged intellect can be used to save us yet or will we continue to exploit our world to the point of no return?

I graduated from UC Davis with a MFA in 1972. Like many graduates my art career was sidetracked due to being drafted during the Vietnam War and then working to provide for myself and my family. I never lost the desire to practice art and have had the opportunity to resume my art work full time since 2008.

I am addicted to acrylic paint for its ability to make luscious three- dimensional forms in space. Mixing a variety of pigments and mediums, I apply the paint to a flexible matrix using squeeze bottles and pastry tubes forming paint objects that lie somewhere between painting and sculpture. The colors can be intense and even fluorescent, creating an unnatural cartoon-like quality. The forms however are based in nature so the natural and unnatural play back and forth. I sometimes embellish with beads and fake fur, which can add a hypothetical narrative that is based in the viewer’s own perception.

I am interested in quantum realities, energy fields, telepathy—all those unseen forces of nature that inform our daily lives, mostly under the radar. Subconsciously we collect information from our surroundings all the time. I live in the desert where I feel magnetized, moving through space with all the other magnets-–mountains, plants, rabbits, and all–in a swirl of powerful connection.
