Artistís statement

I am fascinated by the transformation of matter through natural forms and processes and by the interaction of living organisms to each other and to their environments. I create environments which host a variety of plant and animal hybrids each of which embody a life force and personality of their own. An emotional charge is present through the relationship of these organisms to one another. One painting will generally become the impetus for more works to follow; as I need more surface area, I add new panels and in this way, my environments expand in horizontal dimension across the wall.  I work with oils and in the case of the dark paintings, a high ratio of medium to paint which results in a glossy slick surface.
