My work employs an organic, expressionistic approach to natural forms, which is at once lively, colorful and rich in paint application.
It is my belief that a work of art should reflect an artists’ personality and act as a bridge into his or her spiritual life. That is why I have chosen abstraction as a means of expression. I feel that an expressionistic art requires an intellectual reading that cannot be discerned by any conventional means of looking. It needs to be felt and requires a private dialogue between viewer and painting with the experience being largely meditative.

In my abstractions my aim is to present the viewer with a sense of the energy and flow of landscape elements but not resorting to realism, which I feel tends to limit a viewer’s dialogue with the paintings.
