35 year career with IBM retiring as a Vice President in 2014.
Began my long awaited career as an artist working in oils as well as pastels (since 2020).
I am a student, mentee, and friend of the master artist Albert Handell (12 workshops with Albert). I have been juried in over 50 national and local exhibitions winning numerous awards, including two pastels (“Sycamore Tree” in Grand National Exhibition AAPL and “Pines at Umstead” in Peninsula Art League). I am a studio artist of Artspace in Raleigh, NC.
Painting challenges me, frustrates me, and excites me as the process unfolds into a finished product. My hope is that energy conveys itself to the viewer whether it’s a known subject, the movement of color across the canvas or paper, or a memory that sparks from the painting. I desire to deliver a meaningful experience to my audience.
