My art is a visual record of personal growth. I express mood and perspective of my world capturing transient moments of time, place and thought. Abstraction is a personal visual expression with the unique ability to connect in a manner individual to each viewer. I consider a successful painting one that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also presents my viewers with a unique visual perspective whether the piece be abstract or representational in style. Sometimes my intent is clearly defined before I begin a painting, other times I begin blindly and allow my intuition to lead me along an uncharted path. My art evolves as I evolve over time – never wanting to be static.
