I describe my creative process as thoughts emerging from my finger tips. As I paint I create a visual dialog with the surface. Influenced by my journey of spiritual understanding and growth, I express what is not always physical using color, line, and shape.

I enjoy how patterns of thought can be ordered and worked to communicate a message to others. I record moments in time as compositions — framed by the often carelessly placed, inanimate objects surrounding us. I often sketch the experience of sharing a beverage or meal while commenting on what was present, even the invisible thoughts and emotions. I believe such juxtapositions of relationships and environment tell the story of our day-to-day existence. 

The “story” is of great importance to me. Often, a plot line is unfolding as I develop a drawing or painting. My “Village” series seeks to document the narrative of the emotional and spiritual man. Each work depicts a different location, landscape or architecture containing one or more travelers in a given moment of life. The archways, paths and structures represent the “Traveling Man’s” decisions on the journey. While my “Tabletop Theater” series records the physical places I visit. I retell the interactions I observer, depicted in the drama that unfolds with inanimate objects.
