Statement

Painting, for me, is about working instinctively. Allowing all that I have learned about color, shape, line and space become second nature to me while exploring new possibilities in creating more compositions, painting directly in the defined boundaries of canvas or paper.  

In my current series of abstract landscape paintings, I enjoy working in acrylic paint, allowing me to work quickly and spontaneously in expressing a fresh immediate response to nature with color, marks and shapes in broad painterly brush strokes. 

I am charmed by color and the romance it offers in escaping the everyday into a kind of dreamscape.  Abstracting nature allows me the simplicity of expressing a visual moment with color, light and brush strokes reflecting a certain mood or gesture.

Abstract Expressionism and various artists that I have studied through the years, significantly influenced my artwork as well as music and poetry.  My travels and studies in the United States and Europe, particularly Italy where I lived for a number of years, have a sustaining effect on my work.
