I studied painting at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts when painting was king. It was when I first saw a deKooning painting, that I knew what painting could do and that I had to be a painter.
My main love is oil on canvas or paper giving the full range of marks from watery thin to luscious thick.
One of my favorite teachers at art school, said, "When you paint in oils, you have the whole orchestra."
My inspiration comes from many outside sources but my excitement comes from the process of painting when any original ideas disappear and the painting has a life of its own. My favorite pieces are those that come from "within."
