My paintings are colorful fantasies that incorporate imagery, color, and pattern elements in an abstract fashion. With a multi-layered approach I create worlds of depth and color.

As a former graphic designer for print and animation, I spent years looking at and manipulating imagery used in children’s books and animation. I take that sense of color and whimsy and paint it as an exploration of paint, color, and light. Abstract shapes from disparate sources are combined. It can start with a shape, a mark, and an idea of light and color.  There is an urge to get them down as a challenge to see what can happen next.
