My goal in creating images is to cause one to pause for a moment, look and ponder. Each photo reflects my belief that we are challenged by uncertainty and blessed with mystery. Rio Querencia, River of Serenity, is both a state of mind and my home on the Applegate River in Southern Oregon.
For me art/creativity is a natural expression of life, an endless unfolding of possibilities. What interests me is that which is not overtly expressed in the world around us. The subject matter of my painting is the subtle wordless realm of sensation, feeling, and intuition. This territory is often ethereal, quiet or soft and sometimes frontal, bold, direct or stormy.

I am the resident artist and Chef/Co-Owner of Maclevin’s Restaurant in J’ville for the past 11 years. I've been at the easel for the last 40 years, painting abstracts in prismatic color exclusively with Windsor Newton oils. My surrealistic style employs various construction mediums to elevate images 3-dimensionally from the canvas.
