A willing and giving heart is indispensable in the creative world. Art is a way to share ones inner world with people, hopefully making them happier. Painting has been a lifetime journey. It is a way to relax and to focus entirely on what is in front of me. I received formal art training as an undergraduate, but am primarily self taught.
My university training and experience as a physical scientist has given me a unique way to approach art. Art is science foremost...principles of design and color mirror the science in the natural world, particularly physics.
Yes, art is science, but it also takes imagination and heart.
