Artist Statement

A love of color, variety and illusion define my artistic endeavor. In my current “Pure Spirit” series, I am visualizing a dynamic, rectangular plane as a symbol of integrated mind, body and spirit. I am placing it in various contexts, and try to balance the rational and impulsive by using both carefully rendered and spontaneous techniques. I incorporate variety by combining various styles and assembling multiple canvases. The resulting images are metaphors for balancing order and freedom, extending boundaries, and bridging differences.
