I am exhilarated by the visual dance between the figurative and abstract. My body of work fulfills my natural, uninhibited desire to scratch the surface in a gestural, painterly manner toward accuracy, offering more information with less detail. I realize the principles that govern each piece of my art will not be applicable in the next. Each is a journey unto its own. I believe that it is the constant, tightening of the process throughout a lifetime of creating that makes an artist’s work unique, closer to one’s own, more virtuous. I am using my unique voice, striving for harmony of color and rhythm in each composition, developed from my mind’s eye.
