Each piece of my art reflects my fascination with shape, whether found in a seascape, human body, or a motorcycle. The only requirement for subject matter is that it captures my imagination.
I am captivated by the patterns I find as I walk along the beach, looking closely at the textures and contours of the sand and the seaweeds that wash up on the shore. But the panoramic perspective of distant sea and fog is just as interesting.
Although I have been experimenting recently with mechanical subject matter, I insist on drawing it freehand without the assistance of drafting tools controlling the line. I want the shapes in my art to be spontaneous and organic.
Now retired in Gualala, I paint, draw and sculpt daily. I am often at the Gualala Arts Center where I chair the hanging of the annual Art in the Redwoods show and hang a lot of the other exhibits in addition to maintaining the landscaping and trails. I exhibit at the Artists’ Collective at Elk, and both the Dolphin Gallery and Discovery Gallery in Gualala. I participate in the annual Studio Discovery tour and Gualala Arts weekly life drawing sessions.
Hope you like the work!
