In recent years my focus has moved from design to traditional representation. Strengthening my descriptive skills has taught me to slow down and look carefully. The more you look, the more you see. Learning to love careful observation has led me to the challenge of capturing the subtleties of light and shadow as they reach around each and every object, face and landscape, defining form, mood and meaning.
Ink, charcoal and paint offer me endless possibilities for invention and expression. Thinking like an inventor, testing techniques like a scientist, and then using my results to express thought and emotion engages every part of me.
