About the artist
For over 35 years I worked as a graphic designer, and operated my own design business in Olympia, Washington from 1999 to 2017.
After semi-retiring from graphic design I decided to revisit fine art, which I had done most of my early life and had also studied in college.
I have been trying different styles to see what my passion is at this stage in my life, and it seems it is abstract painting and mixed media. My work leans to a more graphic style overall, most likely from spending years making sure the focus of a collateral piece communicated well through use of type, composition and color. I find with painting on canvas, balance is important, as well as texture and color, but the message of hope and love, conflict and paradox, however I can express it, is to me, the most exciting part of the journey.
