Artist Statement

“Haunting beauty is what I am after- with a good punch of emotion. I love thick paint, the way it moves and melds- using brushes and pallet knifes I ‘knit’ colors together almost like a tapestry. Although I work with oils, pigments, mica, metallic leaf and other diverse media, it is color that is my favorite muse. I love to see it dance across the canvas. Art is something that bubbles from inside me- I am driven to create. Sometimes it comes effortlessly as it flows from my fingertips and other times it is like a fight with me against the canvas and paint. On those days I look like a warrior with paint all over my face, my arms and my studio. My style is organic, ever-changing and influenced by the times we are in—but always there is a thread of beauty with echoes of the past.”

Artist’s Story

It is my vision to paint the mysteries of the subconscious and elements of the sublime. Now in my 30th year as an artist, I count the last ten years a “new beginning” and a period of tremendous growth. Travel to 40 countries to study the greatest works of art has refined my eyes and artistic vision.  My art finds its roots in Abstract Expressionism, Romanticism and Automatism. In this era of uncertainty and unrest, I am creating a language of beauty and peace. I seek to share the quite place and create a bridge between emotion and art.
