Hi, Welcome to my studio/gallery! I paint because doing so takes me to a place of extreme creative pleasure. It makes me happy. I love to play with color and light in an abstract form.

I want the viewer to be drawn into the paintings through the use of color, light, and composition, enabling them to evoke their own emotions from what they see. Their own view of the abstract painting is theirs’ alone and may not be something I intended or even thought of as I was creating the piece. Through a vibrant and vivid palette I correspond to human feelings.

I give credit to all my life’s experiences as to what I see, feel and absorb in the world around me as influences on how I paint in a free-flowing abstract expressionistic form. Being an abstract artist allows me the freedom to communicate feelings and emotions unconstrained by forms found in objective reality. I continue to take risks, find a new path, and express myself.
