My canvases focus on colors, shapes, textures and moods---evolving as semi-abstracted figures, still lifes or non-representational art. I am in continual dialogue with each piece, hanging the art on a wall to view and study and muse over for weeks, before returning to the easel, recreating. Thoughtful brush strokes dominate my creations; spontaneous strokes imbue its spirit. At times, I work from observation or from an image discovered in a newspaper or journal. Other times, I begin a canvas by painting in shapes, objects, and lines---mindful of color and rhythm and composition.
My intention as an artist is to create aesthetically pleasing and meaningful work through deliberation and experimentation.
