Artist Statement

I work in both an abstract and representational manner.  Abstraction, for me is a dance between inside feeling and external visual qualities, particularly colour and movement.  It is immediate, playful and fresh.  In my representational work I strive to reveal the resilience and wonder in our everyday, natural world.  This world is full of metaphor and insight into the human condition.  Making art feeds and energizes me.  I can’t imagine my life without it.
