I am passionate about the formal tools of art; line, shape, color, form, texture and light. I often work in series, taking inspiration from music, architecture, the world around me. I will usually work with one or two of the formal tools during an entire series of 20 to 50 paintings. The goal of my work is to capture the harmony and beauty in these seemingly simple elements and reflect that back to the viewer. My paintings are built up of many, many layers of paint with an eye to translucent color and luminosity and a thirst for strong design.

Italia

Music inspires me! This series is based on the ethereal music of Chris Botti's album "Italia." Venetian canals, old cathedrals, the warm Tuscan sun - these colors, shapes and textures are found in this series.

Summertime and being a kid - that's what the Wonderland series is all about. Riding your bike, catching fireflies, and swimming at the beach - isn't it great to be a kid?

Sacred Love

True love, finding your soulmate - it's all here in the Sacred Love series. You will see the "mandorla" shape repeated again and again. It's the shape made by two circles intersecting - the union of two souls.
