"My abstract paintings reflect my interpretation of relationships (personal, environmental, architectural or conceptual) and are composed of mixed watermedia (watercolor, acrylic, ink, and watersoluble crayon) on paper or canvas.

Subjects that I pursue in my paintings are often prompted by a word or an idea that may or may not be associated with a specific mental image. Developing the corresponding visual image in a painting relies deeply on my personal knowledge and experience, and, therefore, is a uniquely personal expression.

Although my paintings are abstract in nature, they contain a universal connection that allows any viewer, whether or not they fully understand my particular art language, to experience a sense of interest and intrigue, as well as an emotional response."
