“One thing remains consistent in my painting, no matter how much I change. I can’t escape it nor do I want to. Color is what motivates and energizes me no matter how I express it. I find that I respond to color; need color, and surround myself with it. As I experiment with brush stroke and texture, color is a constant. I believe my painting has more movement and surface excitement than ever before and I use these qualities to accentuate color. My subject matter may change but it remains a vehicle to express what is important to me: color”.
