I began painting in the mid-1970's as a high school student.  Since that time, I have been working to perfect my own style of pastel painting.  In 2011, I began experimenting with mixed media painting and the result is my "A Splash of Color" collection of rainbow paintings. A few years later, I added photography to my list of media. 

Whether painting in pastel or exploring mixed media and photography, art is a journey.  I invite you to join me on this journey as you visit my website.

The word “golem,” originates in the Bible, meaning an “unformed substance.” The more popular representation of the golem is in stories about a pre-Frankensteinian creature, mystically brought to life by combining the four elements: fire, water, air and earth. With that in mind, I decided to name my website GOLEM ART because pastels, like the golem, are also created through a combination of basic elements: powdered pigment, water and a binding agent. Each piece of art is unformed until  it is brought into existence by the artist.

As a portrait and wildlife artist and as a photographer, I have been given the rare opportunity to look closely at the essence of the world around us. My paintings and photographs are an attempt to capture a moment in the life of my subject whether it is a person, an animal, a bird or even an inanimate object.  One can capture this moment when looking closely.  The medium may be different, but the view is the same.
