Artist Statement


The underlying theme in this work is the concept of bridging. The idea of bridging is not meant in a literal sense, but rather as a visual abstract language that addresses crossing, joining, connecting, supporting, linking and transitioning as a means of coming together or creating an understanding.  I am continually interested in the interaction of colors, creating transparences with color and discovering new forms within the process of making the work.
