Artist Statement
I create acrylic paintings that are best described as abstract landscapes. The images are recognizable but abstracted and stylized to create an imaginary landscape that is open to the viewer’s interpretation.  A common theme in my work is the lyrical patterns created by natural elements such as wind, water, wings, foliage, and clouds. These natural forms ebb and flow as they fade in and out from the gold background. The palette incorporates colors from nature such as turquoise, aqua, and earthy tones combined with metallic gold, black and white. The ethereal quality of the colors and the paint application contribute to the dreamlike atmosphere of the paintings. I believe in the symbolic power of universal images and hope to engage the viewer to feel the mood and sense of place in my paintings. My goal is to create an uplifting visual experience that encourages the viewer’s interpretation and evokes an emotional response.
