Short Biography and Statement
I am concerned with communicating a sense of harmony, balance, order and spirituality. My paintings depict imagery of personal and global events and psychological issues. They reflect the world we live in, expressed through geometric shapes, color, light, space, texture, edges and movement, each interplaying with one another engaging the viewer to participate. The multi-dimensionality and multi-layering of my work reference what one must uncover to reach the mystery and essence of the soul.
