MY BACKGROUND is in graphic design and as such, I find the the arrangement of color and form to be always interesting, infinite, challenging, and satisfying. I have been engaged in drawing and painting for the past ten years; it is continually rewarding and always fun. My preferred media is chalk and oil pastels and collage, but there is always room for experimentation – that’s part of the thrill of art! I recently studied botanical drawing (see The Drawing Room page) which was intense and rewarding. The following galleries are a few examples of my work. Most of the representational work is based on my own photography; scenes or objects of that I think will make interesting works of art. Click on an artwork to view in a larger format.
