This is the conclusion of a three-part feature. The interview in its entirety can be found throughout the month of November in the Featured Artist link to the right.

What do you know now that you wish you’d known when you started?

The importance of a GOOD gallery connection, one that will help you grow your career.

Is there anything artistically that you’ve always wanted to explore but have never tried?

I would like to do some 3D printed sculptures but I don’t have a clear direction yet.

Anything else you’d like to add?.

There are certain elements in my paintings that often reappear.

The color bars are my way of telling the viewer that my paintings are also about my personal palette of colors. I use water based enamel paint because it gives a color saturation, color depth and variety of hues that I am after. Having studied with the colorist Albert King and designing fabric patterns I learned how to mix and recognize the subtle differences of literally thousands of colors.

Concentric circles come from my past interest in Op Art. I use them to project energy on the painting surface. I will often use colors of the same value to enhance the vibration effect and create visual movement.
