Paintings & Fiber Arts

Grew up in Northern California.  Spent my 20’s in Alaska.  Next 20 years in Hawaii, Lake Tahoe and Colorado.  Home for the past 12 years is in a paradise west of Seattle.

I approach a painting with the end result clearly in focus.  The mediums and the techniques I employ require a certain degree of flexibility on my part.  The bulk of my work moves between calculated structure and design, which brings depth and foundation to the paintings….and splash, splatter and fluid movement, that lends motion and ‘pulse’ to the pieces.

I utilize a vast application toolset …. brushes, bottles, tubes and needles…..airbrush and paint splatter guns to gain the intended visual effects.  Canvas and Plexiglas originals, limited print series and artist’s proofs make up the bulk of the work offered.

Shown and sold in AK, CA, CO, HI & WA.
