Artist Statement

I have always had a strong sense of color and form. For many years I took wheel-throwing classes at the Rockland Center for the Arts in the Lower Hudson Valley but I am self-taught in painting. In 2005, my wife Laurie and I purchased and lovingly restored an 1820s farmhouse in the Town of Hebron, Washington County, NY. We sought to furnish our house with period furniture and accessories. My earliest floorcloths had traditional checkerboards and stencils but I was more fascinated by the vibrant colors and geometric designs of Amish quilts and even the strong Mid-Century graphics.

My floorcloths are painted on hand-stretched #10 canvas with 3 coats of gesso primer, at least 2 coats of acrylic latex paint, 7 coats of varnish and 2 coats of paste wax for a flexible and durable finish. With an occasional thorough cleaning and reapplication of wax, they are made to last for years. Custom orders are welcomed.

Medium: acrylics on canvas or wood
