My paintings may look abstract, but they are not. I interpret stones like azurite and turquoise, shells and coral. I explore transcendence, inner journeys and earth connections. My medium is oils with multiple layers of thin glazes, powdered pigments, gold and silver leaf. I create basic forms; an animal shape, a pattern within a stone.
It is the experience that you as the viewer have with the work itself, which is most important to me as an artist. My goal is to be able to truly communicate through my work. There is viewing a painting for what you see only, and then there is viewing it on another level, peeling back the obvious to reveal the subtle and finding a hidden truth.
