My paintings are atmospheric abstractions of meditation and memory. They are meant as resting places, transcendental escapes from our hectic, complex world. They allude to the rhythms and the quiet mysteries of our lives and our search for the deeper connection we long for in our human experience. The pieces are meant to be addressed by the wholeness of our being, beyond intellectual interpretation. These serene, minimal paintings, with their subtle complexity are layered translucently in search of radiance, nuance and depth. They evolve through a process of improvisation, experimentation, revision and intuition.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T. S. Eliot from "Little Gidding"
