My work can be thought of as both expressionist and minimal. In the oil paintings I use large brushes to create highly energized gestures that intimate patterns in architecture and nature. Color serves to create a window onto natural space and light. In my Sumi ink drawings and monotypes I play with seemingly simple arched forms that provide a skeleton for the more developed color work on canvas.
