The figure, landscape, and still life are historic motifs in art. How we understand ourselves, the environment, and the objects we encounter can be seen through these subjects. I am an abstract painter who finds meaning in the poetics of these subjects. Visualizing, observing, and discovering an image through the abstract process provides freedom for me to specify my current feelings and ideas. The ideas are unique to the discourse of material and observation of art. Larger series allow paintings and styles to be juxtaposed and relate. These projects create visual challenges that I welcome to discover previously unknown possibilities.
