Artist Statement

My artwork, a collection of abstract and floral abstract paintings, combining rich, deep colors and subtle shadings, presented on back painted glass.  The effect is quite unlike any other.  I start with a clear piece of glass, an empty canvas.  With a brush I blend the paints directly on the surface using heat and a combination of liquids to move my colors.  Creating a very organic, earthy feel.  It is then sealed permanently.

My painting reflects my experiences.  My experiences are borne of my environment.  I believe that experience is always positive or negative, never neutral.  It is as if my life is a creation of the art, not the other way around and, at this point, I see them as inseparable.
