Product Description

Exploring the ever changing relationship between the hardness of man made objects and the softness of nature has been an interesting challenge to me in watercolor painting.  Sometimes I find this relationship to be harmonious and sometimes clashing.   Most of my painting is about communicating this relationship in such a way that the viewer feels the energy of this relationship.

The lyrical beauty found in almost everywhere in Hawaii is a source of joy and awe to me.   I seem to discover a fresh aspect of this beauty every day I go out to paint.  It is my hope that you will find some of that in my paintings.

I have been drawing since I was a child and able to pick up a pencil.  My introduction to painting watercolors was in art classes in architecture school.  I started my professional career a professor of architecture at Rensselaer Polyteching Institute , then the Director of the School of Architecture at Montana State University.  Concluding a successful architectural practice in Tacoma, Wasghinton,  I moved to Waimea in 2008 and have been painting on a regular basis with North Kohala Plein Air Painters since.  I now am honored to be a member of the the the Living Arts Gallery.
