I am interested, as an Artist, and Psychotherapist, in the play of feelings and personality as well as ineffable states of awareness and consciousness as manifested in the body and in movement. For many years, I explored this in representational and semi-realistic ways. More recently, I have turned to abstraction as a way to express states and concepts not easily put into words or representations through form and color. The sense of wonder and surprise that accompanies this exploration is a source of inspiration.
