My predilection is clear enough- it’s for insight that subsumes sight, for vision that annihilates taste.
                                   Stanley Kunitz to Mark Rothko

I believe in an art that transcends socio-political and economic concerns and speaks to the one condition we all share—the human condition. Art, for me, is fundamentally aesthetic, and that aesthetic experience can be profound, even revelatory.

I paint because it is direct, immediate and physical. The organic, human aspect of something unique created by hand is vital. The theme of my work is existential.  I am interested in nature and the human psyche.  In the meeting of the inner and outer worlds is the fusion of subject and object, of personal and universal. The painting is where the encounter materializes.
