artist bio

I attended Layton School of Art and became an Illustrator, creating artwork for advertising by many national and local companies during the last 46 years. During summers I exhibited at Art Fairs and also did Pastel Portraits. Much of my current work is Plein Air Painting ( painting from life outdoors). My Studio and Gallery are located at the Springs Studios and Galleries 521 Wisconsin Ave. Waukesha,WI 53186

artist statement

I try to capture the light and atmosphere of a scene within a few hours.
I believe that a painting is not just a two dimensional illusion, but also that of a moment in life,captured by an artist on canvas. I have found that while doing a painting outdoors I am immersed in the moment , what I mean is that later when I look at the painting I can remember all the things that went on as I painted, the weather, the birds singing, a small animal moving through the scene, people who have stopped to talk to me.
The memories are all part of the painting.
