I am inspired by natural color and light in the ways they define visual form, texture, and physical atmosphere. As I literally build a visual surface, I am inspired by the physical and intellectual act of manipulating colored paint and drawing media. This intensely direct visceral process allows me to see what develops organically.
Color and the sensual material quality of art media have always fascinated me for the visual translation they create. Landscape and still life subjects are a point of interpretive thematic connection as well as a consistent point of creative departure. I convert primary elements of the observed world into underlying geometric and abstract structures.
