Artist Statement
Shape, pattern and texture are everywhere around us and they are strong influences in my work. Color is always a most exciting element and a strong composition or design adds underlying strength. My spiritual journey as an artist and as a person is expressed as I become sensitive to what each painting wants to be or wants to say. Every painting is a journey and it is an adventure to see what it will become.
