My artwork is energized by colors and shapes. Seeing how they come together as well as their contrasting relationships. This applies to the archival inkjet prints, as well as my abstracted gestural paintings that still represent form. In regard to my paintings, I continue to build upon this idea, but also incorporate a search for the truth behind the hidden mystique found within each image.
It is the intrinsic beauty of the subject that inspires me. It keeps me engaged, and drives the processes that I employ.
