“In abstraction, I’ve found a way to explore and share visual experience.  Glimpses of sunlight on
buildings, cloud shadows racing across a Virginia landscape, an orange wedge on
a cutting board, the human figure, all find opportunities for expression in these works.

Painting creates a deeply satisfying connection for me.  It’s life affirming — an emotional pursuit. 
I bring my feelings for the subject to bear in my work.  Painting pulls me into the moment
and focuses my attention — it’s a meditation.  Painting makes me aware of my world.”
