Artistic Statement

My early years of academic training emphasized the disciplines of Cezanne. This solid foundation developed a structure within me of inner discipline and respect for truth in nature.

My work has evolved slowly. I now sense a freedom to connect directly with the very essence of the subject. The urban landscape offers a fragility and energy that allows me to utilize other materials and introduce more abstract geometric elements to my painting. Absorbing my immediate surroundings is a starting point for abstracting random color, spatial relationships, and textures for the painting to exist on its own.
