Artist's Statement ::
These paintings are unique in that they fuse dialectical elements of shape and form, transparent and opaque colors, flowing and geometric line and movement and stillness.
Life is a pulse, both flowing and still. Creative painting attempts to isolate the energy within life's contradictions, and bring it to visual reality.
