Colorful, minimalist  still-life paintings created with a palette knife, which leaves a distinctive texture.  Incisions and scrapings, along with pencil and oil pastel marks, trace the creation of the work over time. Light and shadow are key elements in these abstracted scenes of everyday life.  Working over multiple sessions result in traces of previous versions and iterations which allow the viewer to engage in the work on multiple levels.
