Artist Statement

My paintings are prompted by the mystical aspects of personal experiences and observations that began in childhood dealing with the likes of nature, early cultures, war-games, spinning tops and shooting marbles.

I see the making of my art pieces as a felicitous investigation into parts of my life and analogous to an archaeological dig.

My audience will view muted earth tones contrasted with bold color, stimulating textures and possibly 3-D components in images having multiple layers of meaning. I definitely have a passion for process, composition and the painterly surface.
