We take pride in being part of the art community, encouraging and supporting local artists. We rotate artists on or about the first of each month.
Though I don’t feel bound to it, most of my paintings have animal imagery. Looking at animals as a way of studying our own behavior. In a way, they are like self-portraits.
The mystery of geological formations inspires me.
The elaborate shapes that exist in them suggest a history of
dramatic transformation. I’m fascinated by the stories
behind these amazing monuments. All works are done in watercolor,
gouache, ink and pencil on paper.
Many of my current paintings are inspired by vintage photographs, which I re-imagine in spontaneous color. Like Dorothy landing in Oz, the results can be surprising, wonderful, and/or a bit sinister. The laughing monk and Buddha pieces are from wood carvings, as is the Quan Yin/water spirit.
