Artist Statement

For years I have created paintings and drawings that are colourful and strident. Some use the human figure as the core subject and others are abstract. The figurative works are based on my personal experiences in diverse places amongst a variety of people. I look for artistic solutions that communicate a certain aggressive energy, through an expressive handling of paint focused on colour and texture.

My abstracts have become a wonderful place where I can teeter between irrational "visioning" and practical "constructing".  I often find myself daydreaming about shapes, colours, lines, textures, people, situations, and events that I find in the world around me. I use these 'dreamy' observations as starting points and carry through with these perceptions to morph into compositions that convey my own inner world.

My painting excites and challenges me, with the possibilities seeming endless. I hope the creations will be compelling to viewers as well, drawing them through the portal of the painting and into the twists and turns of my imagination.
