I work with color and the interplay between shapes, in shadow. Color is the driving force behind all my art. I become excited by different things and going in different directions and do not limit myself to one type of work. Using and experimenting with a variety of mediums, materials, and sizes has also become an integral part of my creative process. I have been exploring color relationships for my entire career, and I pride myself in the fact that my art is self-contained and refers to nothing outside of itself. It can be discussed but needs no explanation to be fully understood. Although many elements add to the inspiration for my paintings, my goal of my art is to elicit an emotional response from a viewer.
