I am drawn to the power of art to heal and inspire. Each painting illustrates a moment within me, fleeting or otherwise, a moment that begs to be unveiled. The symbolism portrayed through multiple layers of paint and the cacophony of color is obvious and an endless fascination. These personal portraits emit an emotional resonance that is broadly universal.

I begin with a combination of bold color and intuitive mark making.  The process unfolds in fits and starts until the fulcrum emerges to settle each fragment to its own space. Whether the subject matter is the solitary female figure or the non-representational, the journey is the same.
