1. What do you do when you’re not making art? (Day job etc...).

I am a retired college science professor. When not painting, I enjoy living on the water in beautiful Florida, boating, camping, traveling, and also gardening.

2. Why do you make art?

When I see a beautiful scene or landscape, especially the interplay of shadow and light, the urge becomes more and more intense to get my hands and mind into it. It's almost a form of meditation planning and painting it.

3. What inspires you?

The interplay of shadow and light attracts me and inspires me, also the various colors found in nature.

4.What/who are your influences?

When I was a child visiting major art museums, the artist’s work that first drew my attention was Rembrandt, his interplay of shadows, darks and lights, and also some of the other Dutch Masters. I have also admired Monet, Renoir, Wyeth, Turner, Sargent, and many others.

5. If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?

The person that would be a great privilege to meet is Leonardo Da Vinci. He was a master of combining art and science into many of his works. He was able to see the possible science and technology of the future like no other.
