Biography


My artwork is an extension of my personality. They have bold strokes, lots of energy, excitement and movement. I use bright colors to tease, to intrigue and to harmonize. Placing the right color in the right place is my goal. This interplay of exciting colors, shapes, and forms create a key component to the composition. I have been told that I take risk in the manipulating the abstract verses the real.
