My creative art work expresses my love of jazz music, the beauty in city life & nature and my experiences in Vietnam. I create art in various media to include acrylic, watercolor, pastels, pencil & ink, fiber, silkscreen, linocut and paper-making.
Discovered my passion for art in my early 70’s & it has made the golden years quite colorful. Art and music intersect on a daily basis in my life. Most pieces are an extension of where I come from and perhaps where I am going to in the future. Each painting is an experiment. As an artist my paintings speak to me and hopefully to others.
