I studied fine art at the Sheffield College of Art and Design in Sheffield, England, graduating with a B.A. in 1977. In addition to my technical work, I continue to produce small landscapes, working mostly on paper, some on Claybord.

Painting is a form of meditation for me, a way to release from hypnotic thinking. The “almost nothing” nature of watercolor agrees with my spirit and keeps me humble. My paintings are sometimes imagined, sometimes real-life compositions, derived from observation and experience of the natural world. I try to allow each picture to “discover itself”, become its own unique and legitimate place. I strive for a level of detail that connects to that bright, complex clarity of nature that fills our hearts whenever we pay attention, that always rewards a more careful look, that constantly reminds us that the world of which we are a part is still full of mystery, magic, delight and wonder, and so much more complex and beautiful than anything our minds can ever imagine or comprehend.
