About the Artist

About the Work

My work is meant to evoke a sense of natural phenomena by the interplay of color and texture. It allows viewers to bring their own unique experience to the work. I find that the nature of movement provides for infinite exploration…it is a constant in my work.

Each painting evolves as a conversation between the elements within the piece. The various tones are created through surface development. There is usually an additive and reductive process that goes into the work. Color and textures are applied and then burnished to enhance the particular sense of space.
