My work is all about line, color, and form, from snarly mark making to definition of solid shapes, often overlapping and transparent, and the influence they have on the space around them. They are my tools for exploration of air, density, and depth, and means for expressing the tangible and the intangible, feeling and raw energy. My explorations go from pencil to pastels to ink, using various papers and treatments, combining color and line toward the goal of expressive abstract composition.
