Living in this most amazing world, and the experiences and impressions it has made on me, has inspired some of my best paintings. The idea of things aren’t always what they seem encourages me to make abstract paintings. Abstracting microscopic forms that are basically a foundation to our world has been a stepping stone to explore a hidden world to us. The limitations of our innate perceptions make me question the truth of what is reality. What else exists in the world that we are unaware of? I trust my imagination and enjoy the freedom it allows me to discover as it interacts with my feelings and perceptions.
Not only is my work inspired by organic forms and nature, but I’m also influenced by such artists as Sam Francis for his bold color and forms, Rene Magritte for his mystery and twist on the everyday object and Alexander Calder who transforms simple forms into powerful mobile sculptures to which they express a sense of whimsicality.
My paintings are a conversation for me through which the dialogue over time becomes layered by the history of decision making. The development consists of courageous decisions to take away information that once seemed relevant and moments of epiphanies in which the solution of a perceived problem has been illuminated.
The journey of the work is important for me as the artist. Each painting has meaning as a result of the individual struggles and obstacles that have been overcome as well as the joys reached from understanding my media a little more and the development of my decision making. What is available to a viewer is the result of my will to overcome adversity as well as the peace that comes through the bending to the influence of my own creativity. Where my journey has come to a resting place, the viewer’s has just begun.
