Artist Statement:

I paint the spirit and energy of life in rhythmic layers of color.  I respond to what catches my eyes and heart personifying nature, evoking a range of moods with a touch of mystery.  I use a symbolic visual language exploring both the visible and invisible creating a commentary on relationships and thoughts. As I work the images can be unexpected and abstract, flowing from gathered memories.  I build layers making connections and a story comes forth and unfolds. The work evolves, and quite often by the time the painting is finished it has a history of stories interwoven in the layers. I use sgraffito to reveal underneath layers.
