My work is my solace, my meditation, my serenity. When I am working, with a clear mind, I am still. I am the vessel quietly relaying a stoic energy, lightly, effortlessly. Mine is a visual language, employing a visual vocabulary. My gestures remain constant with my perceptions. I believe you must not only see a painting, you must feel it as well. First I sculpt the image…then I paint it. A life-long studio artist, my recent concentration is on three-dimensional canvases with a brilliant color palette that creates an emotional response for my viewer. With contemporary and abstracted themes at the foundation, I use countless layers of texture and impasto with potent hues to create a sculpted surface exuding raw energy. My canvases are in effect relief sculptures, adding depth, casting shadows over the sculpted surfaces within the composition. All works are gallery wrapped or museum profile with painted edges, sealed, acid-free, and archival.

Mine is a visual language, employing a visual vocabulary. My gestures remain constant with my perceptions. I believe you must not only see a painting, you must feel it as well. First I sculpt the image…then I paint it. For me, Color is alive. A life-long studio artist, my intent is to think outside the box when it comes to color, perspective, shape. I like to focus on fields of color, rather than details. My heart belongs to expression rather than a duplication of reality. I allow the paint to interpret the dynamics of my subject’s energetic ethos through vibrant use of a rich blended palette. My recent interest in highly textural surface treatments, including the use of chip stone inlay such as turquoise, coral and jasper, lends a sculptural quality to my canvases. All of my canvases are gallery wrapped with painted edges, sealed, acid-free, and archival.
