I travel the world painting, teaching and exploring. Lightweight gear and minimal supplies allows me mobility and immediate access to my drawing and painting tools whether hiking a trail or riding the Metro. While traveling, I work representationally.
In the studio, my work is abstract. Studio paintings are inspired by my inner world. They are created with layers of paint and spontaneous marks that often transform into figures and orbs. The paintings are expressions of human archetypes, rhythms and patterns of life, the seen, the unseen and the energy that pulses through the universe.
Diversity allows me to expand my graphic vocabulary and to explore new depths of visual expression in both paintings and drawings.
