Biography

Artist?s Statement
I delve into memory, stream of consciousness and everyday life to mine images from both the natural and dream worlds. I then combine fragments from each, often in an unconscious way to form an alternate reality where anything is possible.
My artwork, while representational in nature, contains a strong abstract component. It is this duality, which I believe gives these paintings their unique substance, dimension and texture.
Thematically, the work ranges from still life, seascapes, and landscapes to dreamscapes. Also, and to varying degrees, my interest and affinity for textile design is reflected in my paintings. I am particularly drawn to intense colors, complex patterns, the sensual and exotic.
