I am a retired art educator, blessed with good health, and a veritable eruption of creative energy that has resulted in a spirited return to the systemic painting concepts that I began in graduate school in the 70’s. For the last ten years, in retirement, I have produced a large body of work. My work is a sensory as well as sensual response to seeing and hearing in the natural world, much influenced by my lifetime involvement with music. The resulting images take on a rhythmic, ordered form. Repetition and pattern dominate, many times yielding a monochromatic whole. My work is not about depicting what is seen, the external, the known. It is about attempting to grasp and share what I internally “see”, that which is perhaps not known, but felt. My influences include Agnes Martin. Robert Irwin, and John Fraser, among others.
