The images on this site came about as a result of my explorations
in fusing the external world with inner self. We experience constant change all around us and within us. As a result
we are moved to react, interact and ultimately inspired to create. I believe that this transformation is in itself a creative
process which is evident in all aspect of life. This complex process can be seen in the changing seasons, moods, emotions,
relationships tying into the cycle of life.
These paintings convey stages of motion, fusion and
stillness which represent our interactions with the external world in action, reaction and contemplation. Contrasting
colors are applied with subtle blends, dramatic cuts and slashes. The canvases are at times monochromatic or heavily
textured with multiple layers of color. These images represent the universal struggle to create balance and to transform
chaos into harmony and beauty.
