Artist's Statement  ::
The peace and certainty of the tide rolling to shore. The sound of birds chirping in spring. The gentle warmth of the sun on a picturesque summer afternoon. Standing in front of your favorite painting. Kind words from a stranger. By embracing and projecting the mood that results from the above experiences, my paintings are concerned with the beauty and simplicity of lines and mark making. The lines and marks create a harmonious movement and energy that instantaneously hints at the paintings being representations of the infinite cosmos and minute particles of Quantum Mechanics.
