Artist Statement

Painting and printmaking has always been the foundation my artwork. My training in these mediums began my journey of artistic expression. And while printer's ink, pallet and brush will always be part of me, to grow as a artist I needed to explore other art forms. Today, my work comes in many flavors, from photography to easel painting, from pencil drawings to block-printing, from graphic design to sculpture.

Each medium brings out its own expression. My paintings and colored pencil drawings focus on the relationship between light, shadow and form. Photography takes a different tack revealing the mysteries of everyday existence. And prints are tailor made for a boldness that is born from simplicity and strong graphic elements. My journey continues. In the past year, I have been experimenting with luminous mixed media works involving paint, colored pencil and varnish on wood panels.
