 paintings  with  a  focus  on  iconic  images  of  arizona  and  new mexico   

Following a spinal cord injury in 2011 my life took a detour.  A combination of medical factors made it impossible for me continue my day job as a research psychologist.  My lifelong passion for painting was also impacted.  I had trouble holding brushes, let alone setting up easels

Over time, just to have something to do, I began to paint using my computer tablet and a stylus.  Perhaps, because my background was with acrylics;  the bright, colorful works that I am now painting digitally have the look and feel of acrylics. 

(My spinal cord injury also resulted in a book about recovery).
