As a colorist painter, my work reflects my love of nature as I observe the array and arrangement of hues it has to offer. My language is strokes, blends, harmony and dynamics of structure. Light carves out space as the strength of the light predicts the intensity of the hue. I am intrigued as much with the colors in the dark as I am with those in the light.

Construction of a picture to me is a constant push and pull of idea: composition, architecture of light, surface texture, believability, authenticity, abstraction, dream, illusion, reality, forgetting the picture plane... remembering. My best pieces have evolved when there was a paradoxical engagement of the deep subconscious simultaneously with heightened awareness.
