Artist's Statement:
My work always begins with an intense visual experience. Nature, with its infinite variety of colors, forms, patterns, and rhythms, is often the original stimulus. Then begins a long process which evolves into a picture idea. I strive to achieve a sense of internal order. Withing that order tension, an important factor, is achieved by the geometry of the composition.
