Artist's Statement
I am an artist concerned with the visual complexity of Nature and its dynamic interaction of form and color. I draw a personal vocabulary from repetitive elements of my surroundings, and each painting or drawing is a direct response to the visual stimuli of Nature’s shapes and patterns. I am passionate in reflecting the organic world of this interplay of shapes and colors in my work. Integral to each work is the spontaneity of the drawing and its linear underpinning, which gives the abstraction of the piece an underlying figurative basis.

My work is constantly in flux, as I explore the line interacting with layers of transparent luminous color and reworked surfaces. Each complex composition allows the viewer to glimpse my outer world superimposed on a highly personal inner vision.
