Artist Statement

My most recent paintings represent an emotional

experience of beauty in nature.

 

The act of painting is a journey into the

Unknown – it’s mysterious and challenging.

 

The idea of beauty is always on my mind. I

Want my paintings to be perceived , not as being

About something, but as being something – hopefully

A nonreferential representation of beauty as I feel it.

 

I enjoy altering my photographs of flowers and

The landscape.  My calligraphic marks are the distilled and altered remembrances of nature.

 

Painting in the genre of Abstract Expressionism,

I feel a strong affinity for artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Cy Twombly, and Joan Mitchell.

 

I strive to capture that fleeting and spontaneous

Quality in my work.
