Color, depth, light, movement and the way in which they interact is the focus of my work. Tapping into my innermost self, the physical manipulation of paint and the juxtaposition of shape, line, color within the confines of the canvas, evoke memories, emotion, and a sense of place.
Oil paint on canvas is my medium of choice. I am inspired by past artists and their relationship to pigment and viscosity as a vehicle in which to express themselves. Thinning paint with turpentine creates movement and depth which are integral aspects of my practice.
Both my representational and abstract paintings look through to another realm, one of hope.
