"There are only two worthwhile things to leave behind when you depart this world of ours: children and art"
After nearly twenty years as a medical illustrator, I realized that I had no artwork to "leave behind." Inspired by my daughters' spontaneous and prolific artwork, I transitioned from representational work of a didactic nature to explore expressionism. Contemporary works, with an antique aesthetic, influenced by emotion and medium rather than subject. To capture a memory, a mood, an atmosphere, yet often incorporating a figure or an object gathered from the landscape. Favoring texture and muted tones, I work in layers, deliberately creating patina...finding beauty in imperfection.
