Emerge from the morass of cynicism and realize that color doesn't mean we're wearing rose-colored glasses but rather relishing the gift of being and seeing what is.  


Color and design are essential elements in my work, which while it has strong representational aspects, also incorporates large doses of abstraction and imagination.


I hope to find the intersection of the unknown and the commonplace, to bring the soul of the mountain to the surface of its stones.


I know very well that galleries and critics like an artist to present groups of paintings whose similarity appears as an identifiable body of work. I understand and appreciate that, yet as an artist, although there are some rules and laws I must, or choose, to obey, that isn't one of them. I paint bold and fast, guided only by my love of creation.
