Artist’s Statement


“My work explores the strength and courage residing in all of us in times of adversity. As we experience the fragility and beauty of life, we adapt and change. There are additions, losses and remodels. The content of my paintings suggests both chaos and peace, emptiness and wholeness, hope and struggle.

I paint with acrylic on canvas, as well as mixed media. My paintings evolve layer by layer. Some layers are more fully formed than others. Lower levels of paint are brought to the surface revealing interior landscapes. The push is to go deeper. When complete, the substructure finally integrates with the surface.

The paintings are non-objective in the tradition of abstract expressionism. They challenge the viewer’s eye and trigger feelings and memories of things not present. The layers echo overlapping experiences with people, other times of life and other physical landscapes.”
