Artist’s Statement

I am an oil painter. The supports for my work include canvas, paper, and masonite because I feel that each surface demands a different approach and yields variation to my work.

The formal issues of painting are of major importance: namely exploration and reinvention of form, surface texture, muted color and close value changes. The visual images in my painting while often representational usually lie somewhere between the tangible and the abstract. Within those boundaries, I am concerned with subtle discoveries about the natural world.
