About the Artist

Color intoxicates me. It’s spontaneous. There is no resisting the call of paint to canvas. I feel free. I meditate. I explore.

For me, it is color that stimulates a conversation between tone and texture, between motion and shape. Four, five, six layers emerge—and a focal point is revealed.
Brayers. Credit cards. Cardboard. Fingertips. There are endless possibilities for moving paint. I am drawn to cloth, wood and paper. Redefining chaos with acrylic, gel, brushes, and palette knives; introducing torn pieces of canvas: and my latest adventure; painting oil on marble stone: this is my process.

As an Abstract Expressionist, my preferred style of painting is non-objective. It is not my intention to paint figures. However, sometimes an abstract shape will manifest itself into a figure and become meaningful.

Each day renews my belief in the power of color. It excites me. It is contagious. And that’s why I invite you to explore with me.
