When I paint or draw, I am interested in the reality of abstraction, allusive byplay and associations. Each work of art embodies a story, a revolution of thought, signifies a certain place in time and space, or expresses an emotional experience. I see them as self-portraits, or collectively as a journal of observations. When I begin to work, it is often with a basic premise or emotion in mind. I then paint or draw lines by association: creating forms through a stream of consciousness. I use this process not only to perceive myself and my environment, but to explore those perceptions as well. Using organic forms and colors, I paint in biological metaphors. When I represent the human form it is abstracted and often fused with other natural forms. I use fluid lines and color to suggest movement and provide a three-dimensional illusion. Organic forms act as symbols expressing different states of emotion or sensations experienced in the body. Colors placed in relationship to each other read as different energies. The compositions of my paintings are structured through architectural and typographic lines. The line quality of this series is also reminiscent of Native Pacific Northwestern Indian carvings. Influences from Transcendentalism, Surrealism, Pop Art, and Portuguese azulejos are also evident.
