Artist Statement

“After years of painting representational art, I decided to experiment with non-representational art and suddenly I found my new passion.   Non-representational art for me, became exceptionally freeing.  I can alter the conception of reality using forms, shapes, textures, patterns, and colors.  In other words I can express how “Spring” feels using this medium.  My intention is to continue to explore and create within this venue."
