My work runs the gamut between representational and non-representational art. I draw ideas from moods, seasons, weather and light. I paint plein air to immerse myself into the visual imagery of light and shadow. I paint abstracts to present another reality of forms, shape, colors and texture. Portraiture is also a large part of my work now and is another form of human expression with paint. For me art is an energy whose essence bursts forth in pigment and imagination.
