ARTIST STATEMENT 2019

I have been an artist for many years, having had two years of college courses, and training from various personal instructors.  I initially became more inteerested in art during the war as a kind of therapy to take my mind off the war.  But it has been a part of my life since then.

My personal view of art is that foremost, it should be pleasing to the eye, and secondly, it might evoke a happy memory, or celebration of life.  Creativity, in any form, shows that we are indeed human,.  No other living thing can be creative.  It is an inhancement to life.

I love color, sometimes mixing it right on the canvas.  I also like some type of movement in my paintings, either from nature or from the person itself. I have never made an effort to sell my paintings before, and more will be added to the website later.  I hope you enjoy them.
