In July 2015, I started my 20th year as a painter and will culminate this anniversary with a special Solo Exhibit in September 2016. Tentatively titled 20 Years at the Easel, Adventures in Neuroplasticity,the show will highlight the evolutionary-like process of learning for me. Largely self-taught, I have proceeded much like a scientist doing an extended experiment, with a goal in mind and a plan, and uncharted territory ahead. Struggle and failure are constant companions in any quest toward the unknown, but obsession and passion continue to move me forward. The paintings are the results of the journey.
