Growing up in Sand Diego and Japan allowed me to see and view nature and cultures in broad based light. Oceanic sun rises and sun sets, the Spanish culture with its bold and exciting use of color in art, food and dress, the quiet beauty of the cherry blossom and the quiet disciplined beauty of the Japanese society that use color as a response to life, just look at the kimono or the kabuki theater performer, what a joy to awaken everyday being fascinated about being alive.

I see the finished work in my mind before I start and I do not deviate to far from my original conception. It is this fermentation stage that the emotion to the image will divulge to me the colors to seek, so I work backwards, from the finished image to the blank canvas, how to make the magic that I witnessed come alive. It is the process that entices me, the challenge of thought, material, technique, climbing into the image as it were. I use burn or raw umber to define the shadows, proceeding with a dead layer in either grey or burnt and raw umber and the color layers, finishing with highlights. In oils and watercolor I like to glaze, adding layer upon layer to ensure a smooth transition for each stage of the painting.
