The world of fine art has always aroused my passion, and continues to focus my attention on excellence.  

Painting with brush and brayer, I blend a vocabulary of provocative shapes and surface textures, allowing form and the rhythms of nature to communicate with the subconscious. 


Combining abstraction with representation, my art communicates through suggestion, inviting the viewer beyond the realm of predictability and objective analysis. My intention as an artist is to stir the senses and evoke emotion, awareness and imagination. 

I believe our lifetime journey is movement toward a collective higher consciousness, and the role of the artist should not just be to record or replicate, but to elevate. A work of art can heal, when it embodies that intention and the viewer is receptive to its energy.
