*About that 35 year hiatus:  While I was teaching art in Ethiopia, the Revolution brought lower-level army officers into power. One Sunday, they rounded up 80 of the intelligentsia and shot them. Many were parents of my students. I had nothing to offer save amateur art therapy to comfort and help heal. Upon returning to the states, I enrolled in a graduate counseling program, and went on for my doctorate, changing the nature of my vocation. Now that I'm mostly retired, I find I can no longer stay away from the arts – there is material from decades yearning to be expressed!

Artist's Statement: Painting the boundary between psychology and art
Whether I'm working in wood, watercolor, or another medium, I'm  exploring the boundary between art and psychology. Rather than represent the surface of things, I want to  provide insight into what's underneath, what motivates and matters. I'm happiest when, in addition to illuminating psychological truth, the work  speaks to environmental concerns as well.  In short, my art is meant to resonate with both  inner truth, the psychological, and outer truth, being  in the world in a responsible way.
