Artist Statement

I am interested in art that expresses emotion through color, marks, and texture.  I give visual form to my experience of internal reality.

I start by introducing a number of visual elements (shapes, colors. symbols) and respond to them on the basis of feeling.  I move them around, add new elements, veil and eliminate others, continuing until I reach a satisfying resolution.

I use acrylic paints and oil pastels.  I attempt to create a world that is beyond the rational and concrete, a world that stands metaphorically  for the mysterious and transcendent.
