Hawaii, Southwest and Pacific Northwest Fine Artist
Inspired by the work of certain early 20th century artists and a lifelong fascination with sequential art, my work seeks to convey an impression of a constantly shifting environment even at the smallest level while maintaining the integrity or recognizability of the subject (a head turns, a smile fades, leaves rustle, or a rainbow appears).
After the initial analysis of the basic structure or theme, the subject is distilled to its essence and the work is then gradually re-assembled (with careful attention to balance and lead-the-eye movement) to reflect the emerging relationships within the picture plane, achieved thru an awareness of the interplay of color, contrast and form.
