artist statement

My fascination with light and observations of it's affect on both color and our visceral response is the driving force behind my paintings. I create works that are abstract, stripping away objects and figures that represent the reality that we are most familiar with. Colors added to the canvas illuminate the surface with imperceptible, brushstrokes evoking an atmospheric aura. My work is an escape to an intangible reality and the exploration of the dynamic space that exists between the light and the dark. Within that space is a powerful phenomenon that invites quiet contemplation. 

Passion Project is a series of 10" x 10" paintings. The first ten were created over a period of ten days. Then a few months later the next ten were also created over ten days.
