welcome and enjoy!

1. Because I like the challenge of painting what I “see” inside my head from that which I “see” outside my head.

2. Because it's never boring.

3. Because I like layers to life and layers to my art.

4. Because thinking of color, texture, and form makes me smile.

5. Because someone viewing my artwork can connect with a familiar color or shape, and I like connections.

6. Because it's primal.

7. Because I can paint abstractions with either hand or both hands at once.

8. Because I can tear up old abstract paintings and reconfigure them in to a new abstraction.

9. Because it is one of the things I do best.
