To paint is to connect my spirit to my mind.
My current direction is towards the abstract. After years of a realistic focus, I feel that I am now breaking thru to an absolute place in the abstract. Finally, I truly realize that my painting can be anything that I want, using the subject but incorporating an inner projection without restriction.
One can identify a pathway, of some form, in many of my paintings. This is my way of inviting the viewer to move thru the space and atmosphere that I have created. I am inspired by and strive to reflect on the “pull of attraction” that I perceive in nature. My work depicts the physical aspects that exist, and at the same time, encompass an underlying abstract essence.
