The surround of silence and solitude is reflected in much of my work, for I believe that out of that ether is borne our creative imaginings. Many of my paintings have evolved from walks along the Lake Michigan Shoreline while gazing toward the distance or watching the movement of clouds.
Most of my paintings are done in oil. I strive to capture that which is near and dear to me — clouds, the play of light upon water, the iris in my garden or the translucency of an onion. For me, sight and sound are part of the process in painting; so in the studio where form and substance are realized, the sound of music becomes important to my art.
