“In both my large abstract oils on canvas and my works on paper, I’m interested in the evocative power of inferred space and energy beyond the edges of the canvas. Glazes of translucent color and expressive drawing speak of nature and the transitory quality of changing light. Sky, water and motion are recurring themes of inspiration. My goal as an artist is to create powerful images that invite the viewer to move away from certainty and experience something new… even years after the first encounter.”
