My childhood passion
for painting, drawing, and photography led me to the profession of architecture,
which I practiced for over 40 years, both in the United States and overseas.
Throughout this career, painting and photography continued to be integral
to my exploration of form, light, detail, and composition. My aesthetic
direction in both of these pursuits has always ranged from representational
to purely abstract, responding to the light and character of each location
and culture. The joy of painting in Greece for over 30 years, mainly as
a watercolorist, has allowed me to explore negative space and cubistic
composition through its extraordinary light. Lately, I have used my background
as an architect to explore more abstract composition, color, and complexity
in my painting and photography. Finally, there is often the thrill of
an unanticipated image that develops magically during the creative process
of painting or shooting a photograph.
