For me, painting is exhilarating ... a new found freedom. As a graphic designer, I spent much of my career creating complex documents on a computer. Becoming an abstract artist wasn't the most likely next step. Yet the complete freedom to express my feelings through colors, shapes, textures and their relationships is delightful. I start each painting with nothing particular in mind; ideas spark with the use of different tools and marks, and with each layer new dimensions bring clarity to the emerging concept. Each painting is a journey that evolves on it’s own. I hope my excitement for each subject shows through to the viewer as it does for me.


My paintings fall into two categories:
Abstractions and Portraits.


Each painting is acrylic mixed media on panel with 2" deep cradle. Self framing and painted on the sides. 


Please contact me for any questions you might have, I'd love to hear from you.
