My Artist Statement

I set aside time every morning to draw and brainstorm in my sketchbooks, which I started in earnest in 1973. From these sessions, concepts for paintings emerge; ideas are formed by my love of petroglyphs of the Southwest, outsider and self-taught artists, sideshow banners, vintage cartoons and comics and automatic drawing. What holds these influences together is a certain off-kilter sensibility that I am told goes way back many generations in my family history.

My Location

I am located in Montpelier, VT.
