DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Unframed, Oil on Panel

ARTIST STATEMENT: I'm particularly interested in the interplay of color with shapes and pattern. I usually begin by constructing a subject/structure with paint, feeling as though I'm carving it out of space. I then experiment with the push-pull of pattern, foreground and background. Glazing the shadows comes last, firmly grounding the subject. The result is somewhere between dream and reality, sometimes suggesting a narrative or theatre set.
