Artist's Statement


I approach painting through abstraction and improvisation to present a universal, timeless glimpse of the sublime and mystical. Blending experience and imagination, each work becomes a wellspring of endless engagement, interpretation, mystery and drama, pulsating with life force.

Intrinsic tactile qualities of paint and brushwork germinate images that could not be made with any other medium. Abstract shapes and forms take over energized space. Narrative has been discarded and replaced by a textured visual language that involves daily exploration and relearning to stay fresh and alive.
