ARTIST STATEMENT

My abstract paintngs are inner landscapes of my mind and spirit. They represent images that I have carried in my mind most of my life and now realize their meaning. Through color, brushwork and gestural lines I hope to convey a sense of universal struggle from the reality and harshness of life to a place of harmony. I use loose, active brushwork to express energy and dynamism. For me painting is a natural high. I paint to music and become so immersed in the action that the brush itself becomes the dancer.
