Artist’s Statement:
“I began my first drawing lessons at age eleven, and oil painting when I was fourteen. I continued private lessons and classes in high school, so my University degree in Drawing and Painting was no surprise. When I moved to Albuquerque in 1987, I focused on painting landscapes. The environment here is so great  for artists! Nature is and has always been my “take off” point. The skill set, and subject matter of my work has changed, and continues to do so, especially through the practice of plein air painting! Recently I have concentrated on unifying my paintings with the tools of design and the elements of composition to control the eye of the viewer as it explores the surface and moves into the “space” of the image. Good drawing remains primary for me, along with reliance on the traditional techniques of the craft of picture making. I view my work as “expressively biographical” in the choice of subjects and the presentation. The concept or “idea” in a work of art is everything. It drives every aspect of the work. Precedence is also very important, and a framework for dialogue and interchange of ideas. I embrace all approaches to art making, but I identify with “classicism”.   I view my work as contemporary.  My faith in Christ Jesus leads me in these ways of expressing myself through my art and in my world view.”
