“My painting is an exploration of color and emotion. Both patterns from nature and figurative paintings are morphed into abstracted color field studies. My inspirations include the solemn gray of a sky contrasted with the prism of light that creates a rainbow. Creating the feeling of light through color and different layers of medium is often the goal, with the healing presence of white often used as a partner to vibrant color washes and built up layers of oil. My hope is that a feeling of serenity is evoked from experiencing my work.”

"The paintings are an intuitive process, usually starting from something from nature and then morphing into an exploration in color. The creative process is moved and affected by music, and often times the names of songs listened to during the making of the work will end up in the title."
