My paintings are filled with multiple stories and narratives that flow together in color and theme. I paint spaces that breathe, like stained glass with light shining through to indicate a unique perspective and warm atmosphere. My paintings are rich with detail and color. They are abstractions that suggest an underlying realism that breathes through, like cloud pictures. New forms exist everywhere if you know how to look for them. Life is an open canvas for the imagination. I work with imagery that has multiple readings – for example many of my paintings depict the human figure which doubles as a flower, depending on how you see it. The human figure represents a well of inspiration that never dries up and continually suggests new visual ideas. The master works of El Greco, Chagall, Matisse and Picasso resonate in my work, and have opened the door to my innovation in painting.
