My life has been an overwhelming, but fantastic journey. I have documented this journey through my art. Since the beginning I have loved color. I have been using paint and color to create since I was old enough to pick up a crayon. In the early 60’s I went on a class trip to the Met. I was attracted to a painting by Demuth entitled “The Figure 5 in Gold” The painting was inspired by a William Carlos Williams’ poem “The Great Figure”. Since then I have used color and paint to express my loves, my fears, my sorrows and my joys. My jazz and blues paintings are my interpositions of my love for the art of jazz and blues. Some of these paintings are portraits of my favorite artists. However there are others that are quite personal. What I paint comes from my heart and soul.
I want the viewer to use their imagination. Look at everything that is going on and then from the title, feel the emotions, draw their own conclusion. Artists that I am influenced by are Picasso, Jacob Lawrence, Tamara De Lempicka, Diego Rivera and Willie Butler this is just the top of a very long list.
