I have been creating art pieces that explore “what a painting is” for over 35 years, painting to communicate emotion, to play and to grow. While working mostly non-objectively, I want to push the boundaries of format, plane and perception. Often, my imagery continues off the canvas, or the painting itself may become a sculpture, with a twist or an opening in the canvas or the unexpected added element of another material.
    I am constantly exploring new ways to approach making paintings in order to grow as an artist. Lately I have been paying homage to natural forms and scientific images, which possess inherent perfection and beauty. Take the colorful sea slug, it has endless possibilities to explore with the plasticity of paint, opacity, light reflection and absorption. With geometric forms and the symmetry found in life forms, opportunities abound to play with perceived depth and the illusion of light and shadow.
