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.
