Artist Statement

I paint to create a space "to be," a space to reflect on images that spring from my immediate experience. Exploring their visual properties, I often use intuitive grids or superimpositions to investigate and to express their underlying universal qualities that may lie outside of specific narrative. Working in the traditional material of watercolor and oil paint allows the layers of pigment to interact organically in a process that may cover days, weeks or months.
