drawings and paintings exist from all aspects
of nature. The subject matter may be: animals,
a vase of flowers or a variety of landscapes,
I commune with nature and enjoy the pleasures
of spring, summer, fall and winter. Many long
walks onto mountain paths have helped me become
more aware of flowers in blossom, insects, caterpillars,
butterflies and moths. Many of my works of art
are fantasy animal drawings that have been hidden
in my subconscious. These are perhaps the most
delightful of my drawings.
also enjoy people. My interest lies in people
from all walks of life. Some people are rich and
others are poor. The housewife, observations at
coffee houses or found on buses enrich my artistic
vocabulary. Many times I feel like an outsider
looking at the political, social aspects of life.
have traveled to Europe, Mexico and many parts
of the United States enriching my artistic content
and subject matter. I have studied many art history
books and was strongly influenced by German Expressionist
prints and paintings. Ugliness and beauty exist
in all aspects of life itself. I have experienced
hunger, and depression, happiness and fulfillment
in the path of life. I share my experiences thru
my artwork to speak to the audience.
in my abstract paintings the subject matter is
still suggested. Color, form, composition and
content all evolve into the final product. Some
of my art works are whimsical and distorted. I
take liberties with the subject matter.
do not draw or paint exactly what I see but rather
a feeling about what I see. My art materials can
be napkins, paper towels, paper cups or high quality
work of art is a new adventure for me. The hardest
part of my new adventure is to know when the final
product is complete. When does the artist stop?
My appetite to create is continuous and my plate
is always full. I hope these works of art bring
you as much pleasure as they have for me to create
