To create imagery that hints at a grin and sometimes screams with joy is my defense against the darkness that is part of the human condition. I strive to capture the aspect of play that exists in the seriousness of living. My work is very much about portraying the energy of a given moment through renderings filled with expressive lines, bold colors and especially, fascinating shapes.
Artist Style: Visual: Expressionistic, Representational
My representations of buildings bend and twist in order to communicate the memories, hopes, and dreams of the people who created or inhabited them. My trees, rocks and meadows have solid but soft edges. All that I do reveals my intent to create distinctive compositions of curious if not delightful imagery.
