My painting in the last few years has taken me in two directions. I continue to love painting landscapes, animals and my abstracted versions of the aforementioned, but am also developing a series of multimedia works on paper and wood that have social and political content.

In all the work I do, there is a controlled vision or viewpoint, a simplifying of the subject to create a straightforward composition for impact and accessibility. My aim is to produce a lushness in the painting, drawing or print through highly saturated color and vibrant light. In this meandering process we call creating, the imagination often leads me to blessed surprises wherein the painting/art coalesces.

- Henry David Thoreau

"Art is not tame, and nature is not wild, in the ordinary sense. a perfect work of man's art would also be wild or natural in a good sense."
