Artist Exhibit Statement


The paintings chosen for my first show at Spoonbill Gallery represent different stages
of my creative life - a mini-retrospective, if you will. From earlier landscapes to
geometric minimalism and color explorations I love having these works together as a
testament to my evolution as an artist.

The common threads of pattern, color, geometry and spatial curiosity resonate
throughout the ten-year span represented here. They remind me of how I am
constantly looking and interpreting so much of what goes on around me and also
within. I yearn for balance and light, and a perspective, even when quiet, that invites
visually and viscerally.

While only two paintings in the show have a direct correlation with an actual place,
every painting here is created from my many years of observation and experience in
this amazing and often chaotic world.
