             ARTIST STATEMENT

COLOR AND TEXTURE DEFINE MY ART. I DELIGHT IN THE EXPLORATION OF COLOR ITSELF, ITS NUANCES, AND THE INTERACTIONS THAT ARISE FROM UNEXPECTED JUXTAPOSITIONS. COLOR EVOKES POSITIVE EMOTIONS AND FEELINGS:  WHEN YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH COLOR, YOU GIVE YOURSELF THE OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE YOUR EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH. IN RECOGNIZING THIS TIME-HONORED NOTION, I HOPE TO SHARE FEELINGS OF ENERGY, WARMTH, COMFORT AND TRANQUILITY. MY WORK IS INTUITIVE AND IMPROVISATIONAL, BUT ALWAYS ROOTED IN THE JOYS OF THE WORLD AROUND ME.
