Biography:
My artistic journey has its genesis about a decade ago. Primarily self taught, I participated in classes and workshops at The Art League in Alexandria, VA; Maryland Hall; Black Rock Center for The Arts, and many locations on the Eastern Shore. Since moving to Berlin, MD, my painting has become my central focus. This area is ripe with images, the ocean, the harbors, the farmlands and the light which is relatively unclouded by urban air pollution.

Discovering the exhilaration of Plein Air painting had been a true joy. Nothing replaces that immediacy of painting THAT moment, capturing THAT scent at THAT time despite all that swirls around the easel.

To open that square of canvas to a form or an idea is exquisite. Abstracting these is a new found avenue. What an adventure...painting.

To quote Blair Vaught-Gruler,
I, myself, am transient, like the moment, like my body, whether I like it or not. But while I am here, I feel a compulsion to make meaning. The repetitive movements of manipulating paint, with body motions that are personal and meaningful, manifest an encounter with the present in which I feel relevant and lucid. In paint I situate myself, and my experience of the world. In paint, I exist.
