Artist Statement

I work in several painting mediums concurrently including large-scale paintings on canvas, small-scale reverse painting on glass and collage on paper. In all my work the image comes about as a result of the process. The subject matter of my work is line, form, texture and color as derived from nature. My approach and materials change as my visual needs evolve.

I prefer a direct, hands-on process with simple shapes to create complex relationships. I see my role is that of a collaborator with the materials, the process and the medium. I feel my work is successful when the process and materials come together to create new images.
