Artist Statement:
My abstract work is inspired by the colors, textures and patterns found in both manmade and natural environments.  Perhaps it is the interplay of both.  The weathered side of a building, the hull of a boat or the peeling bark of the Madrone.  What may have once been a perfect surface now tells a story of years of sun, rain and seawater that now crack the surface, what do you see?  Is there a story told or an image created in the layers uncovered?
