Works To Passionately Glorify Nature, Our Most Valuable and Challenged Resource.
A LOVE AFFAIR WITH NATURE
MOVING. STILL. I find quiet peace in the beauty, power, impulse and majesty of nature, and in my work I hope to pass on that connection. I am only walking this way a short while and my wish is to share the texture, the emotion, the visceral experience that I was given during my time on the planet.
I categorize my work as modern impressionism, rich in color, movement and energy. My great loves and influences are Tom Thomson and The Canadian Group of Seven and Vincent Van Gogh . After 25+ years as a creative director for advertising agencies in Orlando, Scottsdale, Boston and Buffalo, I restarted painting again in 2014. In 2009, I worked with Academy Award winner Gerda Weissmann Klein, illustrating her book, “One Raspberry.” I was accepted as an exhibiting member of the Buffalo Society of Artists in 2015 and won their Gold medal in 2017 and again in 2021. I served on the BSA Board from 2017 - 2019.
My works have been in several galleries, juried and solo exhibitions and are in private corporate and personal collections in the US and Japan.
