My work is inspired by exploratory imagery and inventions
of color within
relationships, connections, juxtapositions and dynamic arrangements.
arts search for life force, energy, and meaning is to engage
shape as value and depth. Metaphorical form, complementary and analogous
colors, symbols and glyphs suggest a vital undercurrent.
The forms in my paintings, prints, and drawings are
inspired by growth--the
poplar tree, hydrangea blossom, oyster shell, the grid, and implied
Color, mark, rhythm, repetition, pattern and diversion reveal my
reach and extension.
