I have studied drawing and sculpting at the University of Wisconsin but my life diverged from the interest when I had to start supporting a family. My interest in art never went away and over the years I have visited many major art museums in both Europe and the United States.
After a 55 year break, I am returning to my first love-art. For the past four years I have been drawing in the past four years and painting in the last two years. My interest is in abstract figurative representations working in oil.
“Kant said that we cannot really see reality. What we see goes through the filter of the human mind. I like to think that my paintings are another picture of reality viewed through the skewed or jaundiced filter of my mind and in such a way as to possibly deepen the mystery of life or maybe cast light on the existence of life.”
