"Lush," "moody," "ethereal" are some of the words that have been used to describe my paintings over the last thirty years. It's work that has been brought alive by accepting the energy of the moment. In choosing to embrace opportunity, I create space for something spontaneous or unexpected to emerge. While making innumerable choices in color, shape and line, fear and exhilaration become either ally or enemy. I choose to rally in the energy they both possess. By electing to work with whichever arises, an authenticity is experienced by both the artist and the viewer.
