My acrylic and oil paintings range in size from two inches to two feet tall. Even the pieces you can hold in your palm tell big stories. In the 1980’s and 1990’s I was a biochemical engineer in corporate America, dreaming of living the life I have today as an artist. I paint from the heart and a lifetime of experiences. My artwork is how I share the allegories that have made me into the person I am today. They are stories of anticipation, fear, hope, challenges, joys and triumphs.
The career designing manufacturing facilities for pharmaceutical companies, and then the days of raising three children to adulthood have shaped the way I see the world. I paint the beauty and capture the magic I see in my surroundings. Those bottles, pipes, lanterns and fabrics – they are hauntingly familiar memories of taking the boy scouts camping, cleaning fermentation tanks, baking for class parties, and troubleshooting filtration systems.
