Artist Statement: Although painting and drawing have been a passion since childhood, any related pursuits were eclipsed in my early academic years by science and technical studies. Art academics and studio work did not begin in earnest until 1970 when a growing interest and study of art history planted the seeds for a life change in 1987. In the intervening years I was obsessed with painting and studied visual art and traditional as well as more explorative painting techniques. It was an intensive period of continuing work in the technical field, raising a family, and finding time to study and paint.
