Originally from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, I was fortunate to have my artistic talent recognized. At an early age I knew I wanted to be an architect. I attended a small liberal arts college, Franklin and Marshall College, where I majored in fine art and art history. That experience enabled me to pursue and earn a Master of Architecture at the University of New Mexico. Now, after 40 years of successful architectural practice, I am resuming a life long dream as a fine artist.
My architectural design was characterized by simple form, dramatic patterns of color, light and shade, visual simplicity, and the important relationship of positive and negative space. So it is with my art. I am inspired and influenced by the pure light, strong form, varied textures, vibrant color and most importantly by the dramatic contrasts of the southwestern landscape–blue and orange skies, green and red earth, yellow vegetation and purple shadows. With a passion for drawing, I introduce line as a means to create movement and direction and as contrast in scale to simple planes and forms. I revel in color and its ability to elicit emotion. I strive to create simple, memorable and emotionally charged imagery.
