I'm dedicated to my evolution as an artist. Creating is as necessary as breathing for me. Through this evolution and dedication I've clarified the discription of myself as a "Creative Expansionist".
My motto in the studio is "Toss fear out the window".

More About Me
When I'm not painting I love to Garden or otherwise spend time in Nature,I enjoy living in the countryside but near a larger community which has a strong focus on the Arts (such as Santa Fe, NM).
Work Experience:
Self-educated and self-supporting since 1970, I began as a jewelry designer and creator, first as a street artist, working myself up through outdoor fairs, Galleries and on to Corporate and major manufactures. Stress to my body required me to turn my focus to fine art printmaking and now painting.
My Fine Art has sold around the world and hangs in Corporate offices, Hotels, hospitals and Homes.
I've worked with Design Teams, Art Consultants and Art Publishers as well as happily just by myself, in my studio, ever exploring new and better ways of expression of what ever it is that interests me that day.
Mentored by Jack Cartlidge (sculptor and Fine Art Professor, New College, Sarasota Florida) in 1968-69.
Self-Educated; along with workshops and classes with various artists in the USA and Europe
