The bold colors and the island dwellings in a Gauguin have influenced my work and my fascination with the oddities in a Picasso have always delighted me. These two and so many more masters who changed the courses of art history taught and set me free to explore.
The feel and texture of paint and the joy in painting have always called. While fine art has been my background in education and graphic design my career family has always come first…and that is where time has flown. However, with retirement now realized and art in my blood the dusty files of ideas stored away for years should produce an interesting series of work.
Art... from the beginning to the final frontier.
