Artist Statement

I paint for the dialogue. Making art is the manifest part of an ongoing conversation. My immediate goal within the picture space is to merge figurative moments with personal geometric awareness. My exploration and understanding of the relationships and identities of point, line, and grid – although abstract (and often duplicitous) ‘structures’ we impose on an organic world – serve as starting points for work. Oil, wax, graphite, and charcoal are vehicles of choice.
