STATEMENT

As relationships are vital to our well being, so too is its importance

to the life of a painting. Emotional associations activate the surface in order to create drama, and provide for a means of connection with the visitor. Relationships can be helping or harmful. Setting off one element against another, often lead to questions: do they compliment each other? Do the repel their neighbor? Do they together create action or a compelling movement?

There are so many ways in which paint shows relationships through color and form: lyrical horizontal movements across the canvas; beautiful flowing and flowering of colors one into another; forces of overlapping forms, aggressively pushing against or pulling each other apart, sharing disputed boundaries.

I like to tell these stories of powerful emotions. By using paint and abstraction as a medium of storytelling, images emerge that indicate what is beyond our visible world.

Thank you for viewing my work.
