I funnel emotion onto canvas through the use of texture, pattern and color. I do not have a preconceived idea of how my painting will develop but expect that it will change and grow as all life does. As I go beyond realism and redefine relationships created by nature or man, I find that I'm inspired to embrace fresh methods and combinations to create my paintings and they often end up as assemblages. By visually listening to the landscape and becoming immersed in its lyricism, I explore the depths of my vision and give the viewer an enticing interpretation of the world we live in.
