I paint about my world: my thoughts,
my feelings, books and magazines I read, people I meet, things I
walk by and see. I am interested in perception and perspective,
alteration and adjustment, shifts in context and size and their
effects on my reality.
What I perceive is often subject to the limitations and distortions
of my inherited and conditioned nature. But I am living in an
amazing time in which I have the opportunities to experience my own
evolution. I can transcend my biases and expand my awareness. I have
the choice to become: more conscious, more powerful, more
understanding, more loving, and more grateful for this gift of life.
This is what my work is about.
I am inspired by humor. It is an integral part of my personality. E.
E. Cummings must have understood this when he said, "The most wasted
of all days is one without laughter." I intend to not waste your
My seemingly simplistic paintings are hybrids: conceptually complex,
visually expressionistic and abstract. They are often playful.
Paradoxically, I am serious about everything I do.
