About the Artist

I’m a mixed-media oil painter, inspired by Liquid Light Shows I worked on in the 1960s, which began my life-long journey exploring the use of the color mixtures of paint and light together in my paintings.

Lightshows also influenced my interest in using radical scale change for my textures – enlarging the microscopic and shrinking the macroscopic.

Japan is another big influence on my painting. I lived there for four years, and had my first formal art training there. While there, I began learning meditation techniques that I use in my painting process to visualize images of my experiences with music.
