Return to WHO WE ARE Page

For a long time I have  been drawn to the incredible variations of surfaces.  Be they natural or man-made and altered by the elements, surfaces engage my imagination. 

I do not allude to these sources literally, but as they cumulatively affect my sensual awareness.  I use color and texture to tempt the viewer’s eyes and hands into an exploration of the activity on the surface of the picture plane.  I hope this activity will tweak a memory of something previously seen or felt, and thus connect some of my memories to theirs.
