Exhibition Description

"Abstractions” is a collection of images full of color and energy. I use color, line and composition to express experiences and emotions that engage the viewer. My goal throughout is to convey a sense of emotional energy, whether it be peaceful and calm or dynamic and joyous.

Artist Statement

   I am an explorer, often looking for new ways to combine color, line, and composition to express experiences and emotions that engage the viewer. I often push for somewhere I've never gone before. Sometimes I sketch out rough ideas before starting. But when I become entranced in the moment, my paintings sometimes take on a life of their own as they evolve toward my goal. Not all experiments work, of course, in art as in science. Those I learn from and gesso over.

In some of my paintings I design with blocks of color and continue to add layers of transparent paint, allowing the under layers to shine through. The tools I use depend on the design, ranging from a wide variety of brush sizes to straight edges, sponges, or simply pouring paint in puddles to dry.

My goal throughout is to convey a sense of emotional energy, whether it be peaceful and calm or dynamic and joyous.
