"...it is human instinct to produce and enjoy artistic experiences."
“Art works are the most complex and diverse of human achievements and creations of free human will and conscious execution.”
-Denis Dutton – author of The Art Instinct-
Beauty, Pleasure and Human Evolution
“Art works have always held a certain fascination for me, beginning as a child walking through museums here and in Europe, as a college student wrestling with the challenges of art instruction and again as a teacher watching my students create. The process of art creation and the physical reminder of the beauty of our natural world motivate my interest in painting. My goals are to capture a visual segment of time where color, form, light and shadow provide aesthetic consideration and perhaps emotional content.”
