My work is an outward reflection of my inner world. The natural world is my muse and feeds my soul. There is an alchemy that that happens with the paint medium as it pushed and pulled to create the work. I am a colorist at heart and paint both abstracts and landscapes which reflect that deep fascination with color and the relationship of colors to each other. There always is a gap between vision and what can be conveyed by the artist’s hand. I am constantly chasing that vision which keeps me exploring and trying new mediums and techniques.
