Oil Pastel and Gouache
The return to making art for me after a long hiatus has been a rewarding and challenging path. For most of my working career I was a visual merchandiser and window designer. Using my art and design background I created enticing environments. Now I work on my own art. My works are preconceived concepts that are influenced by the world around me and through the process of creating they become an ever-changing thought until they become a statement of their own, which I call Referential Abstraction. Thank you for visiting my website.
