Creativity has played an important role in my life for as long as I can remember. For 50 years it has taken me on a wonderful and fulfilling journey with experience in graphic design, advertising, printing and photography. Now I can add pastels and oil painting to the list.
Creating a painting is much like watching a photo develop in the darkroom. It is magical to see and feel a painting come to life. I am convinced that fine art comes from your heart and soul and is a true expression of who you are. Generally I would describe my paintings as Impressionist with influences of Alfred Sisley, Trevor Chamberlain and William Merritt Chase.
My fine art photographs exhibit a different side of me: bold, powerful and graphic with brilliant color motifs. I teach a course entitled FOTO.101~Introduction to Digital Photography at the Art Gallery of Viera. Click on the link to FOTO.101 here in my website to learn more.
I like to challenge myself with a wide variety of subject matter and I hope my efforts bring some introspection and joy to others who share my love of the interplay of design and color. My ultimate goal is to create a painting or photograph that speaks to a person's heart and evokes a positive emotional response.
I am currently in the process of marketing an environmental education strategy game called the Wetlands Game. This is a full class participation board game intended for middle school students. In addition, I am adapting this concept to create "The Indian River Lagoon Game", which is currently in the research phase.
