Rather to define my work by the line, it is by the colour that I compose my paintings. My work is dependent on design fundamentals: form, colour, and composition, and I believe the most complex emotions can be evoked from the simplest forms. My style explores the intimate relationship between nature, modernist ideas in visual art and musical composition.
The physical act of applying very fine layers of paint, works to reveal a natural harmony between the tool and medium. The varying colours and subtle network of shadows and light that are revealed through the layers project a sense of atmosphere and tension that draws the viewer into the mystical and mysterious. At this point, it is my hope that what begins as a visual experience transcends to a deeper emotional journey.
I am stimulated by light, form, and emotional response to my surroundings. Sometimes my paintings contain elements that are almost recognizable, although I often make the decision to obscure certain attributes, pushing the final image further toward abstraction.
