My art continues to explore and confront the intensely exhilarating feelings found in personal experiences, past and present. I am also striving to delve into a deeper connection to, and awareness of nature, and more fundamentally, into a visualization of the energies in life itself.
Light, color, and texture are important elements used to capture nature's spiritual essence and energy. Expressive brush strokes and layers of paint create movement and an orderly, yet dynamic symphony.
I strive to convey an awareness of life, death, and spirituality that is beyond representation.
Over the years, I have achieved
a balance between my fine art and graphic design work. These two have come together in art prints from my original pen
and ink drawings. My surrealistic images are developed in
a style I call "Quantum Drawing." The result is a composition
where subjects flow together while simultaneously forming larger
concepts and expanding into the imagination.
When a painting is listed "with Objects," this means that I have attached custom-shaped materials to the surface of the canvas in the process of painting. I continue using this original means of expression by merging my quantum composition with dimensional elements.
