I am a scientist by training and an artist by choice and I believe that identical skills are necessary for both art and science. Art requires a knowledge of technical information and science requires creativity. Both are necessary to develop an emotional response in the observer . In my own paintings, I look for value, composition and simplicity. Subject matter is also important, but the power and resulting statement of my paintings comes from the technical interpretation of the work. My goal for each painting is to capture and preserve a unique moment in time because no matter what the subject matter, that moment is unique.
