1980’s Paintings


I decided to be an artist when I was very young. My grandfather was a cartoonist, but my parents were both writers;

so, while it did seem possible to paint, it was also rather rebellious.  Gramma had studied at the Art Student's League in the same class with Georgia O'keeffe. When I was nine, I began painting with Gramma's oil paint.

Kandinsky and Klee were my early heros when I worked in colored india inks. Even then I began the process of trying to understand more painterly painters I still care about today...Gauguin, Delacroix, Albert Pinkham Ryder and Pollock. But I still believe what was said by Paul Klee: "Art does not render the visible; it renders visible."
