Artist’s Statement

I love to paint and draw ocean surf, and am fascinated by imagined cultures and places.

I grew up on the California coast and began drawing beaches, waves and imaginary places while still in grade school.  I studied art at California State University at Long Beach, at California College of the Arts in Oakland, and then architecture at California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Art at Western Oregon University in 1980.  After graduating, l built a house two blocks from the ocean on the Oregon coast, and there I began creating paintings and drawings that began to say something about the ocean.    

I work in watercolor, acrylic, and graphite pencil. My primary efforts are to share my joy of ocean surf and to continue developing the place I call The Commonwealth of New Island. This ongoing imaginary island-nation in the Indian Ocean can be found here at newisland.net.
