I am an artist trained formally, versed in the technicalities of drawing and painting. However, I have an inner need to express myself abstractly. My work is the result of a need to express an essence that is both primal and eternal, and abstract by its very nature. It is an essence with which our subconscious interacts, whether in a state of mental stillness, prayer, or dreams.
Color is my forte and my primary means of expression. I push boundaries in color relationships, revel in the play of color harmonies, and use color to both defy and define form. In this way, my paintings sometime take on a surreal edge where color itself becomes the subject.
