Artist’s Statement

I find I use my eye continuously in my environment:  the interiors of houses, walls, floors, stairs, and plants, even disected vegetables, all become elements of geometry enhanced by shadow and light.  Random juxtapositions catch my attention.  What I choose to paint becomes exciting, as in creating a concept and nurturing it (e.g. making a series) or, recently, when drawing/painting portraits.

I challenge myself to share with the viewer the novelty of such an image to awaken in him or her a new perspective.
