I realized that after 42 years as a restaurant owner that my newly acquired passion for painting outweighed my good sense. Mostly self-taught with a tremendous desire to try new media, I endeavored to experience many forms of Art. I find that moving between the various modes of expression keep me excited at finding new styles and techniques. At age 73 I have determined that Color holds depth, emotion and fascination for me. Different palettes of color are a form of therapy as well as joy, mixed together with apprehension and the courage to go on. I have traveled extensively in France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco to pursue my education and exposure to art around the world.
