I work in paint, photography and computer imagery. My choice medium is egg tempera where I attempt to capture the relationship of nature to human endeavor. Sometimes that may entail depicting the natural beauty that affects our lives. At other times the images that I produce to show the way nature reclaims its own territory without regard for human interference. Old abandoned farmhouses are one of my favorite subjects. The air of mystery that surrounds an abandoned structure intrigues me and window reflections in these old buildings also have a strong effect on my sense of aesthetics.
My paintings and photography depict my interest in nature and its effects on us. Although I work mostly in egg tempera my goal is to capture the varied colors, patterns and textures found in nature, often overlooked by the casual viewer. I work with various techniques: drawings in pen & ink, pencil and charcoal, paintings in egg tempera and oil., photography, both digital and film. And some experimentation with DV camera work.
