. . . I am best described as a colorist
I love the common objects which make up our daily lives—flowers, food, a cherished vase.
My paintings depict shallow space, unusual shapes and inventive use of color. My art heroes are Cezanne, Van Gogh and of course, Matisse. My work relies on color, form and pattern in that order.
I am best described as a colorist and my process involves multiple layers and responding to what appears on each surface as the painting evolves. My aim is to evoke the sense of joy I experience as I create paintings in the viewer as well.
