My work is about the joy of seeing the beauty of shapes in paint. It ranges from total abstraction to images drawn from the world around us.
Some of my new work is inspired by patterns at different scales in the natural world – from molecules to ice sheets to nebulae. Another recent direction explored images of energy unleashed, such as tornadoes and nuclear bombs. Other works are inspired by a shape, a color combination or a concept, and then I just follow the brushes and see where they lead.
I currently work in oil, acrylic, encaustic, watercolor media, ink and mixed media. The choice of media allows me to delve into different methods of working with the materials to explore a myriad of possibilities for creating beauty out of various shapes and patches of color.
With all my work, I like to challenge the viewer to see the beauty that’s right before their eyes –– the colors and shapes of paint....
