Introduction

I do art!  In my work I emphasize quality, integrity and spontaneity. Since childhood I have found solace in the creation of art. It is my gift and I try not to waste it. My influences are Edward Hopper, Andy Goldsworthy, ants, snails, and people who paint things on the head of a pin. My media of choice are oil painting, sculpture and photography. The three disciplines borrow from eachother for me making each one stronger! Having been a professional picture framer since 1990, the presentation aspect of the art world is always on my mind. It is amazing what a great frame can do.          Co-owning Four Corners Framing Company in Holland, Michigan since 1999 has afforded me a front row seat to many types and styles of art. It has been a great and constant inspiration and keeps me on my art toes
