  • I grew up reading science fiction and fantasy books, and loved the paintings on the paperback novel covers of science fiction books from the 1960s: images of aliens, astronauts, wonderfully retro spaceships, and the like.
  • I started painting back in high school, went off into other types of artwork for a while, but found myself returning to painting periodically.
  • I’m attracted to moving forms, surrealism, and fantasy and science fiction themes, and like playing with the vivid possibilities of adjacent and complementary colors.  If you’re looking for information about my drawing and painting classes, click here
