My work does not conveniently fit into a category. There are elements of abstraction and glimpses of “reality”. One might guess at surrealism, but I do not think of my work as such. My objective is about taking a fresh look at the traditional landscape. By using this familiar format, a dialogue is created between the viewer and the image. The brain always attempts to organize the lines, shapes and colors it perceives; with no easy reference point, there may be no connection. A recognizable arrangement even though out of the ordinary begins the communication. The composition arrangements are originally discovered by a random array of tissues and recycled papers, viscerally suggesting nascent scenes which ignite my imagination to use as a model for preliminary sketches.
