"I paint as a form of expression. Each mixed media work is a story within itself representing a journey, a memory or a mood. The paintings explore the relationships among texture, form, space, movement, and color. I use heavy, strong shapes in a somewhat playful manner incorporating multiple layers to activate the surface and reveal passages of time and history.
The pure act of painting delights me, adding and eliminating, shifting and restructuring elements until the moment a solution reveals itself. I'm intrigued by the power of a small detail or single element to create a shift in the harmony, or balance or tension of a composition. The process is completely engaging, exhilarating, frustrating, and rewarding.
I paint in two different styles, non-objective and expressionistic/abstract landscapes. "
