Artist's Statement:
Through the years there have been many changes in my artwork, from abstract color fields and geometric constructions to personal symbolism and invented landscapes. I have painted large and small scale, printed silkscreens and mono prints and used a multitude of materials for my mixed media sculptures. The continuous search often leads me to new discoveries and unexpected results.
