Painting for me is a spiritual quest. My paintings, prints and
pastel drawings are based on my belief that
inherent in all life, especially human life, is the potential for enlightenment, and
by realizing this potential, we can create a peaceful world. The light that emanates
from these colorful works is a metaphor for this belief. They can be enjoyed
simply as sensous color, or can be used as a vehicle of exploration and understanding
for the viewer.
The painting process, a layering of thin glazes, relates to a layering and
multiplicity of meanings. What interests me most is luminous color and atmospheric space.
Color is used to create an atmospheric space which allows the viewer to dream, to contemplate,
to feel inspired the way a sunset or a starry night creates a sense of wonder and awe.
