Artist Statement:

"To me, art is an adventure into an unknown world of the imagination. And, my goal is to capture the essence of things unseen, and to draw viewers into my magic circle of creation, allowing them to experience something of the thrill of 'making,' which once had been my privilege as an artist. The experience is both visceral and cerebral...explosively energetic and pensive.

Like the early vanguard of Abstract Expressionists -- among them, Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko -- I value spontaneity and improvisation, and accord the highest importance to process. The hallmark of my style is an emphasis on my own improvisational techniques, and expressionistic use of color, line, form, texture and space to represent things that are not visual such as an emotion, sound, place, event or spiritual experience.

I am always exploring new avenues of expression and work with a variety of media -- fabric, wire, acrylics, paper or found objects -- which further enhances my expressionism. I use both conventional painters' tools -- bristle brushes -- and unconventional implements -- spray bottles, hair combs and kitchen utensils. And, I have come to discover that my work relates to the rhythms and syncopations of free-form jazz and poetry, to visual ideas found in quotidian objects, and to various rhythms found in nature and the cosmos."
