Artist Statement

“As a career medical illustrator, I have always been a technical, representational artist. My subject matter was generally medical or biological. However, during retirement years, I have developed an eclectic taste in painting subjects and how they are traditionally viewed. I am still drawn to detail and how light and shadow visually affect objects and color within a still life, no matter the angle. I try to create depth and excitement by balancing the lights and darks within the colors and the overall composition. My goal is to draw the viewer into a painting, emotionally or intellectually and to spend some time personal time there.”
