Artist Statement

“I have been working with the premise of creating paintings with specific color palettes for many years. It is a working process that I find endlessly fascinating. This is a subject that has been written about with many variations. The practice of orchestrating the colors in a painting to register in a particular key is my approach.  My focus has been to create the illusion of transparency with opaque oil paint mixtures.”
