When I paint, I lose myself in the act of creation, in the selection of bright colors, and in the vivid forms that emerge from my imagination.  I find that I have instinctively followed an abstract expressionist approach, and I have never been concerned with line. My paintings create a bold statement yet demonstrate a classic style. In my studio, I am constantly changing my mind about this color, that form, or the location of this object here or there.


 I am often drawn to the landscape as a starting point, or, alternatively, to the human figure in its basic form surrounded by color, light, movement, depth and emotion. For me, inspiration comes from many sources in the real world and in the visual imagination of those who have gone before me.
