“As a classically trained painter and printmaker, my abstract and representational works are based on strong compositions, values and color harmony. I am a third generation artist whose creativity was nurtured from a young age. As a result, I find inspiration in unlikely sources, seek out a variety of ideas to develop and thrive on the challenge of exploring new themes.
A particular color combination often compels me to create a painting just to further explore the nuances of hue. As my creative process continues, a balanced, abstract composition provides structure and foundation to the painting. Drama is then introduced through the combination of texture, line, soft and hard edges, a variety of brush strokes, washes, glazes and the tension that emerges from mixing techniques and media to achieve a desired effect.”
