Many other artists have devoted themselves to a life long study of painting. I find the answer of the question of “why?” comes easily, yet always with a touch of surprise.

 

I work in this rich field of wonder because I am compelled. Certainly, there are many professions I might like to have entered. However, none so all-absorbing or so incredibly rewarding in personal triumphs of the mind and spirit as the investigation of color and design. It is an infinite quest.

 

A time came when a choice had to be made as to what kind of art I wanted to explore. The field is so vast as to be somewhat bewildering to a young hopeful. There is much to be said about experimental painting and certainly much has been said. I found my criteria in what offered me the most endless amount of sheer joy. I simply love painting and I still need a few more lifetimes to realize all of the pleasures envisioned when I began.
