I have been making art instinctively and passionately since I was a child. Every artistic endeavor has been a learning experience, each building on the next to bring me to the point where I am today. I have learned how to paint from university classes, from extensive independent study, from artist-friends, from workshops, but mostly from trial and error .... and trial and triumph. It is one of the biggest joys in my life. In the words of Albert Einstein, which I have borrowed to apply to my view of art, each painting is a way of "opening up yet another fragment of the frontier of beauty."
