As a painter, I like to explore the poetry available in oil paint. I draw inspiration from natural forms, circles, spirals, organic lines and curves, and nature’s wondrous creations like bird nests. Whether representative or abstract, I enjoy the serenity and calming feel of these shapes and symbols.
My work expresses mood and emotion where ethereal glistening light and brushstrokes are fluid, spontaneous, and from the heart. The expression of optimism and hope is always present in a musical dance within the work. I hope the metaphorical engagement that weaves through my pieces will invite the viewer in, open dialog, or lead to a sense of ease or wonder.
