Artist's Statement

The focus of my work is color, color as painting. color as sculpture.  Creating the work allows me to translate much of the stimulation (visual, audio, emotional) that I take in from living into tangible forms. Often people respond to my work as landscape with a topographical perspective (as if they were looking down from above).  The texture of the colors and the groupings of marks add a strong narrative sense to the work.  I liken the creation of my work to a conversation.  I approach the blank surface with a vocabulary (line, form, color).  I have no set idea (sketch) of what I want the completed work to look like.  As I commit myself to the work (by applying color) a rapport develops between the painting/sculpture and myself.
