My long and varied career began in Yellow Pages working in graphic design and illustration. A painter for many years, I have become intrigued with monotype, strappo and solar plate intaglio print making.
Most recently I’m exploring the world of digital art with a combination of my own watercolor, acrylic paintings and some digital imagery. The process I use is most accurately described as digital montage - a union of diverse visual elements in a composition, the original form of which is a digital file. I borrow elements from my paintings, drawings, photomontage and scanned objects to produce original images. The computer technology I employ both fosters and gives form to visual ambiguities which creates original art.
My work is influenced by my travels and extraordinary sense of color and drawing ability.
The simplification of marks and forms in both my paintings and prints have a mystical quality, allowing the viewer a pleasant transition from realism to abstract.
