"My paintings demonstrate figural reconfigurations illustrated through the use of form and color. The work is non-objective and uses the human form as the element of design rather than using the human form as a narrative.
Examples of previously sold work:
My application is impulsive, allowing abstraction to be a mental process and the product takes on a fast-moving energy that is perpetuating. My purpose is to keep the viewer‘s eyes constantly moving within the work. As a result, the viewer will discover a sense of participation, an invitation to find the distinctive abstracted forms. While the shapes convey their own sense of life within the environment of each painting."
