I count among my painting influences the works of Delacroix, Rembrandt, Henri and the Ashcan School, and the Hudson River School painters. Outside of painting, I've gathered a vocabulary from ceramics, chiefly the works of Shoji Hamada, Bernard Leach, and Ron Meyers, among others. All of these point to an approach of focusing attention to light, shape, pattern, and color as they develop in the current work. It's a formidable battle sometimes, but there's a logic in it, a grammar, as in all languages.
I invite any questions and comments regarding my work. I'm curious to know what you think.
