DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Framed, Oil on canvas

ARTIST STATEMENT: My work explores color, transparency, reflection and the material qualities of light. I seek the intersection of representation and abstraction, simplifying form and creating compositions with strong underlying geometry. My work often depicts blissful, fleeting, transcendent moments where the ordinary becomes extraordinary. I am drawn to water, from where we all came and without which we cannot live. It’s a common thread in my painting, whether in a glass or a pool, a river, quarry or sea.
