I am an Artist based in Scotland, an ex-NYer. I built an art centre here as a way to bring more beauty into the world, to uplift the Soul & Spirit through Beauty. To me, beauty is a great, great mystery, elusive. I see in every period, an aesthetic, or various aesthetics. I am fascinated to see what I can bring to earth, as an aesthetic(s) for our own time.
What I am interested in is creating presence; images of people with whom the beholder can start to, first, become curious about, then sympathetic for, then can fall-in-love with, …a perfect friend.
Professor Ernst Gombrich, the Art Historian, was my mentor in the final 12 years of his life.
