Artist Statement:

Making art. Addiction? Meditation? Therapy? Joy? Frustration? Satisfaction?


My art is generally done in a quasi-representational style with acrylic paint, playing with different mediums applied to canvas or paper with brushes, pallet knife, fingers, squirt bottles, sheet rock knives, rollers …

I am inspired by nature in its many forms, colors and moods: the soft color of a flower, the play of light on ceramics and organics, the contrast of night and day. I am constantly striving to take form and simplify it, take color and intensify it, to capture energy with line and texture and to add my own sense of the world.

In this submission I have chosen to concentrate on the Floral:

Flowers are so intriguing to me. On their own or in groups, in the wild or contained, communicating the light and texture of petal and leaf with single strokes or a mass confusion of color is all part of the adventure. The floral world is so forgiving in its expectations of portrayal, realistic or abstract, the feel and the energy are there, on canvas or paper, presenting itself to the viewer!
