My artistic studies started with a discovery of my ability to accurately portray representational subject matter. However, I have recently found freedom in combining it with abstraction.  My mediums vary from oil to acrylic combined with wax and sand, creating an impasto quality. 

With a love of the gestural beauty that the mediums can take on themselves, my paintings explore the past and future of the human soul through color and texture. Using palette knives, brushes and sometimes unconventional tools, I work with paint as a 3 dimensional material. I have found a twofold direction in my work, embracing abstract improvisation as well as using unbridled color in intentional human forms. My need to unleash untested concepts of the mind combined with a free-flowing intuition in use of color drive each of my paintings.
