My paintings and prints employ mixed media on either high quality
paper, wood panel, or canvas. Representational and abstract symbols stamped,
drawn, printed, or collaged, coexist with balanced design elements to create an
overall visual harmony. Bold geometries suggest an archetypal, intuitive language.
To interpret the symbols, one must use cognitive powers
based on intuition rather than analysis or logic. As art is considered to be
subjective, so too is the capacity to translate a symbolic language such as
that experienced in dreams. In other words, we innately understand its meaning
without having to be literal.
The intention in this work is to suggest an
expanded realm wherein our consciousness not only already dwells but also
innately comprehends. Each painting can be experienced for both its surface
beauty as well as being a visual meditation reflecting larger, abstract
