Artist’s statement: Image, color, composition, and texture are all informed by what I read, what I listen to, and that which surrounds me. I work with acrylics and mixed media, painting, and creating assemblage and collage as well. My work is primarily abstract. Through my paintings, I explore the relevance of the indescribable, and work toward the understanding of that which can’t always be understood. In this sense, creating art is part of a spiritual journey as I seek to connect the physical and the nonphysical with the intention of drawing the viewer into a deeper understanding of his or herself in relation to the world and that which is physically beyond them.
A few years ago I awoke one morning and had the idea to begin a series of paintings that related to my dreams somehow. These paintings emerged over a period of several months. They are all 12” x 12” x 1 ¼.”
