Artist's Statement

My paintings have always hovered between figuration and abstraction, sometimes leaning more one way or the other. I work spontaneously from my subconscious, watching images develop that are playful and enigmatic; figures that appear and disappear beneath veils of color. The act of painting, for me, is spiritual and physical joy, reflecting my own personal inner journey.

All of my work is about what happens when we move outside the structure and the known. Images shift, change, obscure and reveal the surprise, humor, mystery and celebration of life.
