San Francisco, CA - United States
I am a native of California, returning to reside here in 1999 after careers in the military, theater, historic building restoration and writing. I have been dedicated to painting since 1992. In over 20 years I have taught myself to paint by studying great works from around the world that exemplify the styles and techniques of every age, by reading artists' first-hand accounts of their own experience and processes and by going to the easel each day to develop the discipline and confidence of a master painter. I would like to experience a revival of great painting and the resurgence of an audience able to appreciate such art.
My technique of transparent layering and complex color mixing produces visual richness and depth. My process is informed by the dialogue between color as projected light and color as reflected light. I am an artist of this century who is informed by the legacy and immersed in futurism.
