Artist Statement


My work is inspired by nature.  I take the colors, shapes and lines found in nature and abstract them to express what I see and feel.  I use circles to symbolize infinity and the never ending cycle of winter, spring, summer and fall.

The process is as important as the final product.  Because I love nature so much,  I concentrate on it's power to move, breathe and grow.  When trying to emulate this natural action in nature I apply several layers of color to my canvas, creating an under coat and texture.

My dotted lines represent trees or roads, and also illustrate direction and depth.  The bold brush strokes and colors are energetic - as though dancing across the picture plane, creating movement throughout my composition.

I also draw universal images onto small shaped pieces of paper and attach them to my canvases.  These drawings represent our human touch as part of nature.
