I’ve studied painting for 25 years, in New York and New Mexico with several accomplished contemporary masters in their respective studios. As my work has evolved, so have I. Always a risk-taker, I love experimenting, asking myself ‘What else is possible’.  “What beauty can I create to add to this world?  (a very subjective issue).” “If I add this color to that, what will I get?”  “If I follow this line or add another layer of transparent color there, what will happen?” I head to the studio with the faintest of dream fragments…thus begins another dialogue with Self.
