Artist Statement:
Painting non-representational, I want to awaken one’s senses to color, texture and shape.  My nonrepresentational paintings evolve initially from meditation to an impression of shape, color and texture; then constantly change until harmony and balance are achieved.  In this series of paintings, texture is a predominant visual element.
