Artist Statement:
The elusive nature of light and color and the architecture of space have been the subjects of my abstract paintings for more than ten years. I have come to embrace the ephemeral with its’ attendant ambiguities as the core of my painting practice. I think of paintings as places that one can revisit often as one would a favorite mountain, tree, garden, or building, as still points of contemplation in a world of relentless change.
