Artist Statement

My work draws heavily on observation and a direct response to images in the natural world. My overall objective is to rearrange reality in my work to attract the eye and provoke the imagination of the viewer. I like to take known objects and reconstruct them - remake them - to interpret shapes and colors. It is my goal to focus on the junctures in the geometry of objects to punctuate my interpretations and memory of the subject using small, moving, glistening areas against larger masses of color . I paint using the relationships between colors, as well as the texture of the media, particularly the malleable thickness of oils and washes, to build up the surface and to define form. My work has been inspired by well known artists throughout history, especially the artists Diebenkorn, DeStahl, Redon, Klimt and Bonnard as well as the jewel like qualities in Celtic art.
