I have many influences at this stage of my life. Everything is collaged into my art making one way or another. Usually, my art is made in the studio from these gathered energies, and the simplest materials of oils, bursh and canvas. Each work is constructed with colorful strokes charting a visible record of the work's creation as it moves toward composing a moment in time. I often make adjustments when creating the movements of color, line and space until the proportions of the pictoral structure is resolved. These works are loosly based on the desire to visualize the energies of a moment's perception. Each element is vital to maintaining it's visual poise.
