My work is both search for meaning and embrace of joy. It's driven by a belief that all living things are interconnected beneath visible surfaces and by the rapture of losing myself in the flow of art-making.
Taking up the brush, I ask myself "What is my intention?" and "Can I find the essential character of my subject?" Then using the language of color and shape and guided by such questions - the emotional beauty of light, color and form takes me for the ride! It's a balancing act!
