Born and Raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Moved to San Francisco in 1969. Relocated to Coal Creek Canyon, CO in 2000. Studio: "12 paws". I paint and draw using pallet knives, brushes, my hands, acrylic, charcoal, India ink, pencil, oil pastel, graphite .... basically whatever I can get my hands on! Using raw canvas tacked on the wall of my studio (12 paws), I begin the process. Abstraction mixed with Nature, Color and Geometry is the heart and soul of my work. Recently, I have been drawing a few geometric lines on a canvas and a character representing todays youth and their daily life appears which makes me laugh and I hope you laugh too! In the paintings; Justice, Love, Freedom, Joy, Identity, Music and Movement, words were given to me by friends and strangers engaging the viewer. I created the painting through abstract interpretation of the word. "Beyond" is a series of painting in which I ask the viewer to "LOOK BEYOND" the current conditions of the world today. Topics include HOPE, THE WORLD, BEAUTY and THROUGH THE SCREEN DOOR (1 & 2).
