Within a nonrepresentational image, I am concerned with color, texture and the enlivenment of the entire picture, intending to create a visual experience of discovery that draws the viewer into and around a varied surface. I enjoy expressing with color–sometimes subdued and sometimes lively. The marks, shapes and forms in the art can also be subtle or strongly defined creating a range of feeling and atmosphere.

There is no preconceived idea of the finished piece. The final image evolves and emerges over time through the building up of layers and texture with collage or paint and adding color, line, and form. The layers and overlapping create depth, form relationships and texture. Color unifies, clarifies, balances and organizes the work. Each artwork is an individual journey that has its own visual story to tell.
