Paintings

Travel has often provided the visual memories that initially lead me into a painting. While the atmosphere and spirit of Mexico have always been inspirational to my work, visits to Hong Kong have introduced me to new color and spatial sensations that continue to affect my work. As an abstractionist the observations and memories may become submerged as the painting develops, but they resonate and continue to inform during the painting process.

My paintings are color structures of rectilinear forms. The initial surface divisions are rescaled and adjusted as they fill with color, and this color development really becomes the life of the painting. The work arrives at a resolution when the colors interact and result in a spatial fusion.
