Artist Statement

For many years, I have traveled and lived in the Caribbean. The island’s intense colors, simple forms, azure ocean and underwater gardens have always been a source of inspiration for my art. Living in Sonoma compliments my visual sensibility and adds an alternative environment to my artistic pallet.   Using concentrated colors and working completely intuitively I paint and draw landscapes and flora and fauna that are bold, vivid and passionate. I seek to amplify nature employing vibrant colors and simple but sensual images. The work is both expressionistic and accessible. The use of color and form creates a direct vehicle for my own self expression.

 

Creating monoprints allows me to play with color, form and mark making. My work is active, packed with energy and suggestive of nature reduced to its essence.
