Artist Statement
Figurative expression made a space in the world of art for perceived image overlain with the visible action of the artist's brush. These paintings fit in that space. They are about paint, the psychology of color, an intimate relationship with surface, thin layers of paint that sit atop a cool ground that is neither water nor sky. These paintings are an expression of enlightened joy, a joy in settling, in quietude, a quietude of clarity.

Art speaks in metaphors. Mine are written in the language I know best, the language of doors and windows, bricks and mortar. These paintings are an exploration of facade, both built and constructed, and the degrees of access allowed to shelter or soul.
