My art and life are a study of contrasts: order and chaos, thick and thin, questioning and acceptance. Using rich surfaces and layers of glass, I contrast fleshy realism with abstraction. Immediacy and restraint, delicacy and directness; I balance bold composition and nuanced line.
A maker of pictures and teller of stories, I’m soothed by familiar fluency and stirred by ecstatic newness. Fleeting gesture on solid ground, murky meaning and bruising impact, chaos and eerie calm. Disparate elements crescendo and resolve into beauty.
