"When you have a need to create, opportunities present themselves in many mediums. After much exploration, I landed on painting. It allows me to touch my basic self.
I find that I am sensitive to sound. When I paint, I select music that moves me to my basic self. I yield to the melody.
My hand responds as if dancing across the surface. When I step back, I see areas that should be enhanced or taken away.
A common response to my "Acoustic Line Series" is that these pieces look like cave paintings or primitive African art.
I am pleased by the comparison. I feel that I have succeeded in removing years of high tech visual stimulation to get to my core. I believe the core of the human spirit is constant, from cave painter to acoustic painter."
"Abstract painting appeals to me because I can express myself
through line, color, scale and texture. The viewer, young or
old, can read the work through their emotional reaction to
these elements."
