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.
