My latest work in oils began in 2018 after acquiring an enormous canvas I cut down and attacked with house paint and acrylics. While a great and certainly frustrating learning curve, I’ve discovered oils produced the intense color I was after.

There’s an obvious horizon lines theme, a result of both thirty years driving the coast and many years playing outdoors. Sailing and rock climbing have always been a source for calm and reflection–a way to decompress. More than ever lately I’ve felt an urge  to create a sense of quiet, of peace, through art.
