About the artist...

My paintings on canvas explore the idea of change and the evolving of images through the process of painting. The large canvases, saturated with color, present the viewer with shapes in constant movement. They relate to mythological figures, landscape, animal forms, fragments of body parts with a ripe undercurrent of sensual and erotic possibilities. Dramatic and verging on the edge of narration, the lush and muscular paintings yet remain abstract, their subjects elusive and intriguing. My ever-shifting forms are suspended in layers of highly charged paint and sweeping, perfectly controlled gestures. These works redefine in contemporary terms the heritage of the Abstract Expressionist painters.
