"After a career of working as a surgical artist, portraying anatomy for limited color production, I now enjoy creating full-sized figurative paintings and working with a live model. I think pastels are particularly colorful and have forced me to think in terms of bolder gestures due to the constraints of the medium. I was introduced to oil painting driven by portrait commission requests, but find this an easier medium when outside, for plein-air landscape painting. But the icing on the cake has been a return to my very first fine art love, intaglio etching. Working thru the challenges of switching the studio over to non-toxic methods and materials, the prints are rolling off the press at a steadily increasing rate. Now that I have the time to focus on my fine art, after years of 'red for the arteries, and blue for the veins', I’m curious where the path will take me."
