I have been creating for 12 years. When I retired 14 years ago from my Real Estate position, I decided that I wanted to create artwork that was affordable to the majority of the audience, I started with all the classes I needed. Drawing, painting, sculpting, print making and ceramics. I studied hard but enjoyed every minute of it. Now I create peacefully in my studio with one very thought in mind, make artwork that will inspire more peace to my collectors and audience and in one way or another make them happy when they view my work. I create my works with colors in mind. It is my tendency to use in most cases vivid colors. In my sculptures, which are created of high fired clay, mostly of young women in retrospective postilions. These are actually created when I have the need to express my thoughts, weather it be happy, retrospective, sad, thoughtful, and sometimes frustration, I said it frustration, and then I am very happy when these turn out the way I pictured them in my mind.. Any of these moods do appear often in these abstract clay figures. I do paint portraits of women using oil paints, but none are of an actual women, they are faces I see in my mind. I don't paint from models and very seldom from a photo to organize the face, This is very difficult but I am please when one of these ladies look back at me and it appears that they smile.
