My favorite Stories

 

I remember, when I was a child hearing my dad embellish every story.  Some part of me was always attracted to his ability to have a story line and improve upon it with creativity and visual symbolism to the point , the story became more than it was.  I suppose in some way, I am continuing that legacy. 

I have always loved books, the illustrations as well as the words.  My work is a combination of that form of art as well as arts that I have studied and seen, especially cave art, surrealism and expressionism.  I love to draw and to paint.

I am now creating my own story.   Sometimes my image is a play, an opera or a comedy. Each story takes a life of its own combining visual and free thought.  I believe that narration is the core of both literal as well as visual arts, whether abstract or realism.  All artists, I believe, are trying to tell a story.

I have loved cave painting, abstract expressionism, Degas, Kahlo, The Garden of Earthly Delight, Kathe Kollwitz, Max Beckmann, Vincent Van Gogh, and Susan Rothenberg.
