Thomas Mann once wrote in a preface to Herman Hesse's Demian that we must "assist the new without sacrificing the old. The best servitors of the new may be those who know and love the old and carry it over into the new." We need to believe this, I feel, in order to be artists and to reaffirm the pleasures of humanistic existence.

y paintings and prints represent an effort to depict of my life what is most meaningful: my family, friends, and students; the images conveyed by the things which strengthen a desire to express my life rather than to reflect my time.

It is to Humanism and to the respect for man's skill and craftsmanship that my work is dedicated. Sometimes this means looking into the past to rediscover the visual power and expressive language of an earlier medium. Sometimes it means developing a new medium which has new capabilities to help one to "speak" with quality and clarity.
