Artist Statement

I search for compositions vibrant in color and form, and I try to transmit clarity and an optimistic perspective of Nature. I use mostly watercolors today because they are best at capturing the transitory essence of life. Water, which allows the pigments to flow freely on the paper, and the unpredictability of the "wet on wet" technique, are the most important components of the blending of color. The result is paintings with a special softness and brilliance which allows the viewer to experience a sense of abstraction within the shapes and forms of the composition. When working in acrylics or oils, my art takes on a new transparency influenced by this interesting medium.
