Originally a painter of realism, I now enjoy the adventure of abstraction. When I approach a canvas, I have no conceived idea of what I want the finished piece to be. With paint and paper, I seek form through color. New shapes suggest themselves; new discoveries and unseen possibilities appear. The relationship between them are the determining factors in my work. There is a never-ending search for new color and shape with repeated experimentation.
