VISUAL ARTIST 1976-PRESENT

After a ten year retirement I am re emerging as an artist with current work in oil paint and cold wax medium on wood panels. The cold wax combined with the oil paint allows me to create heavily textured surfaces with many layers of color. Originally I worked in metal. Later I taught and worked in fiber and traditional oil paint, always seeking the most interesting use of color and texture.
