My work combines abstraction and symbolism through highly colorful pieces that embody elements of nature, science and spirit. I use a variety of materials in creating the work; these materials include acrylic, charcoal, pastel, graphite, ink, markers, stain, acetate overlays, oil bar and collage. Normally I work on unprimed wood birch and maple panels and paper surfaces.
I desire to create work that makes a positive impact on people in energizing and generative ways. My methods of working are direct and immediate as I incorporate the layering of imagery and glowing, colorful organic forms. This approach has led me to work where the natural pattern of wood grain panels is incorporated into compositions that include a vocabulary of arcs, circles, painted rhythmic forms, and staccato-like dots, marks and dashes. Ultimately, I visualize natural, metaphysical and cultural forces through an intuitive iconography of gesture and image.
