I had always been artistic and creative, and for over 45 years now, a painter dedicated to creative process. When in the process, I am totally focused and spontaneous in a way that is very liberating, freeing of spirit where time stands still.
This is what attracted me to painting, especially plain air landscape painting. I enjoy working very quickly, sometimes on location, gradually building layers of color and texture to mimic nature. Some paintings are later finished in the studio as not to contaminate the fresh qualities achieved on location.
