Artist Bio:

 

 Our lives are spent in a long series at lessons.  In my life art education has been critical to my continued growth as a person. Important life lessons began at Santa Monica College majoring in fine art. My first college art teacher gave me what he considered sage advice; he told me I was a waste of his time; I had no talent and should give up art. He was the teacher, so he knew what he was talking about.  My grandmother Dee Durham a local Santa Monica artist thought differently, she taught me the basics of drawing and oil painting in elementary school.  My first painting was a vase of chrysanthemums; the paint was laid on thick bright reds, yellows, and oranges.  I think my mother still has it.

 

Lesson: Work on your skills, follow your muse, and don't listen to pompous moronic teachers.

 

A few years after college and abstract painting became my door back into the studio.  I combined poetry with a wash of black paint and vivid, bright geometric shapes on canvas.  I ended up throwing the painting away, instead of decorating the local dump the paintings found a new home in a neighboring apartment.  I accidentally discovered my trash painting on a neighbor's wall, while walking past their open apartment window.

 

Lesson: Don't throw away cool stuff even if you don't think it's cool.

 

It's impossible for me to be a one dimensional artist so I paint i various styles form landscapes to seascapes, to vividly colored abstracts and sculptural terracotta figures,  I take a lot of pictures, I photograph a wide range of images in traditional and impressionistic styles.  Among my favorite subjects are thought provoking conceptual images I call "Low Brow."

 

I love what I do, my art is an expression of my faith, love, passion, and joy.
