Inspiration from nature is what lights my artistic fire. Even though my early training at the Art Institute of Boston was in Abstract Expressionism (under well know artists John Bageris and Jason Berger), New Mexico Fauve-type Expressionism is what has always prevailed in my work. Usually oil is my medium but sometimes Nu-pastels – I love to allow color to take over and create the expressionistic feeling. As with music, color can elicit a subconscious response in a mysterious way. I continue to investigate this phenomenon.
