I am a painter and a craftsman. During my early education and before my introduction to art, my favorite subject was plane geometry. Rectilinear forms and their relationships made perfect sense to me, and the certainty of a straight line was always fascinating and reassuring. Geometric abstraction was an exciting revelation, and the austere beauty of Mondrian’s compositions remains the benchmark. In my work, I seek that state of grace embodied in natural elegance and harmony. I believe that the best art is transcendent and affords a glimpse of the sublime. The quest is rewarding as the successes and failures of each work suggest possibilities for the next. It is an ongoing process. I am a painter and a craftsman.
