In this work I translate my life s experience with loss and unexpected regeneration into visual poetry. Belief and re-imagining, ambiguity and certainty, grief and grace, depletion and spiritual tenacity are the highly personal yet universal realities which compel my paintings.
Through a language of undulating, nuanced surfaces, intimate interaction with the physicality of the paint, and hundreds of layers of color, my response to life’s mysteries takes form. The paintings are suffused with a strong sense of human presence and the inherent engagement of spirit.
Abstract references to water, sky, earth and air rise to the surface within viscous color fields as visual metaphors for the often ineffable experiences of the human heart.
