About the Artist
I study a person or object as an integral part of its environment. I use color and light exclusively to define the interplay of forms. My painting begins with a tinted canvas, onto which I build light as well as dark. I draw with the paint. There is no initial sketch. My primary concern is to balance the abstract elements of color and composition before I hint at the details which will make the forms recognizable. My work is a loose realism with a touch of Impressionism.
When I studied in Aix en Provence (1975-1976) I was greatly influenced by Impressionism and Cézanne. This is where I developed my sense of light and color. Later, in Boston, I combined my understanding of the Impressionists with the Old Boston School and developed my own style. As exemplified in my work Cafe with Bicycles.
I have been painting for over 40 years and have painted professionally for 30 years.
My artistic expression derives from all locations that I have visited and I continually seek better expression of simple forms and relationships in my work.
