Having always been fascinated with life’s mysteries that often lie outside of our culture’s established norms, I find that abstraction departs from the prosaic to challenge our perceptions of our everyday world. My passion is to create images that to me are compelling, both emotionally and visually, endeavoring to provide a portal for transmuting the temporal to the empyreal. I’m inspired to create images that are dramatically vibrant and mysterious, invoking the imagination. As an explorer in a landscape of unfamiliarity, I’m free to sojourn through my own mindful metaphors. The viewer is invited to as well.



Part of an ongoing project entitled “Stranger in a Strange Land” these images are initially found captures of paint; cracked, flaked or otherwise deteriorating on rusting metal. The textures are inherent and the colors and tonality are the result of my initial and subsequent response to the subject matter.
