About

Artist’s Statement

I infuse my work with an active, vibrant, sensuous love of existence. The physical solidity of all true spirituality is at the heart of all my work. I find color particularly delicious and prefer to capture it “in motion.”

I am inspired by ancient icons and their mandate to “paint the glory of God” and by the movement and evocative aspects of art and life on the heroic scale, even when focusing on minutiae.

My journey has traversed through landscape, figure, face and abstraction; but always the form emerges, triumphant and alive.

My relationship with God is at the heart of all my work, informing and vitalizing the subject and its’ emergence. To evoke this interconnectedness I create several pieces around a central theme such as Creation, Woman, Transformations, Mystery, and Song: Inviting us deeper into the richness of life in God.
