I have always favored watercolor -- for its effects, its colors, the light coming through its pigments, the ease of transporting it in the field, and its durability. (Acid-free paper can outlast canvas, and a wide variety of permanently stable paints are available.) I also paint with oils on canvas when the subject calls for it, and I've completed commissions in ceramic tiles, hardwood sculptures, and an 11x106-foot nural, as well as portraits and landscapes.
I take care to compose my works with strong abstract structure, but I delight in realistic detail as well. I study wildlife, botany and geology, and I seek to communicate the spitit of these subjects in my paintings.
As the world changes, as reefs die, glaciers and ice caps melt, friends disappear and memory falters, I draw and paint what I don't want to lose.
