“Painting is poetry, where strokes sing and resonate within you.
Painting is a symphony, color & strokes melding together creating perfect beauty, together and alone. Music grabs a hold & takes me into the painting process. Leading me to color & shape. It is an emerging, delicious process. Discovering unplanned surprises within leads me along. The energy of thick textural strokes mixed with transparent layers allow much depth, movement and harmony.
My motivation is to portray the inherent beauty and synchronicity that exists in the inter-relationship of color, composition and form.
I want my work to emanate a constant pulse of joy, positive energy & excitement to and for the viewer.
Each painting resulting in a delightful discovery of things unseen, drawing the viewer in, a blithesome trip to a new place.”
