As my eyes roamed back and forth across the painted limbs, leaves, and flower heads above me I recognized the ecstatic impulses of nature in that artist who had lived long before. Suddenly I ached for her marks to live on. I knew that my role was not to restore, or even replicate what she, or Mother Nature, had done before, but rather to channel that echoing creative impulse through my own visual language. The essence of my current body of work was born that day.
My paintings use the intoxicating lure of beauty to call the viewer forward to look more deeply at the surface of reality. What you see may come up to greet your hand, as the sculptured and contoured forms that ripple across the surface beguile you to touch and beckon you to experience art more deeply.
