Primary Medium: Painting
Other Mediums: None

In my career as a critical care physician, I witnessed first-hand the struggle of life and death as well as the profound effects of this struggle on the friends and families of patients. Life is fragile, and death can be capricious in whom it claims. I was privileged to witness the power of human touch, love, and compassion in the healing of patients, and the comforting of families. In 2013 my own medical issues forced me to retire from 30 years of medical practice, and give up over 20 years of making ceramic art: pottery, murals, and large scale sculptures. While I had many facets to my life other than medicine, the loss of my career affected me profoundly, and I struggled to regain a sense of purpose and balance in my life. Throughout my life I have flirted with 2 dimensional art using charcoal, watercolor and acrylics. I returned to painting by simply making marks on a canvas, no concept, no model, just making marks and adding color as the spirit moved me. The results were surprisingly informative and healing. From there I expanded my exploration and study to create representational works. While I admire all styles of painting, I am drawn to works including the figure, and the footprints of humankind in the world. In either case I seek to portray the richness of the human experience, celebrating our individuality, diversity, interconnectedness, and impermanence.
