Artist Statement

"At the most basic level, I am drawn to the way geometric shapes create such beautiful contrast with loose, textured backgrounds. I think that the most basic lines and marks on canvas can be utterly gorgeous, and I absolutely love color. I paint using acrylics on birch wood panels because the panels hold up to the sanding and scratching into the layers I create in my work. In every piece - especially when viewed up close - you’ll see the history - evidence of under layers – that impact the design and personality of each piece."
