Artist's Statement

I am a painter/printmaker. My work is representational and expressionistic. My work reflects my travels and explores the formal issues of monotype, oil, and pastel. The current subject matter is water and small, colorful boats. The Fifty-one Dinghies Series is a visual inquiry into the mysterious qualities of water. The figurative element of the dinghy activates abstract patterns in the water.
