the beautiful Inuit artwork here in the Northwest, and the colors of
the flora in our Emerald City of Seattle every season. As a child, and
adult, my environment has touched my art. To my Teen years in the S.F.
Bay Area, absorbing the 1960's culture of the Filmore West and
Winterland Concert posters, Berkeley Barb and other political newspaper
artwork. The "Flower Power" art of "The Yellow Submarine", and Peter Max. The 60's
Renaissance of Maxfield Parish and Art Deco. The comic stylings of Dori
Seder and R. Crumb. I've taken it in and used these influences to draw what I
early childhood years of living overseas had me in awe when seeing the
Sistine Chapel, it's beautifully painted ceilings by Michael Angelo,
it's stained glass windows. The multitude of sculpture everywhere we
turned during our travels through Germany, Austria, Holland, and Italy. The Italian Glass makers of
Venice inspired me enough to spend 12 years as a glass worker for the
micro electronic industry. The primary colors and joyful scenes of the
Haitian and African, and Native American, and Western artwork my family
collected over the years. The beautiful , ornate Asian art and
metalwork my father brought back from Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia.
My life has been filled with beautiful artwork. It is how I reference
the world. How the light hits a friends face during a conversation.
The dappled play of leaves's shadow dancing on the sidewalk. How many
textures of bricks on one Pioneer Square building. I'm driven to
celebrate the feelings connected to the life I see with my art.
