I am now a Professor Emeritus at Oregon Health & Science University but reside here in Kailua. Since retiring I developed a strong interest in art. I have studied art history and taken numerous courses through the Honolulu Museum of Art and the University of Hawaii. My focus now is on Plein Air oil painting of seascapes and landscapes. The shift from scientist to an artist has been an exciting adventure. Observing light and color as an artist has changed the way I see the world. My style is slowly evolving as I attempt to be more “painterly”.
