Bio

A passion for all sorts and kinds of papers is usually the inspiration for the beginnings of my paintings. A dialog with the canvas emerges as I apply paint and papers and various marks. My work is sometimes figurative and sometimes abstract, but the consistent factor in the work is the collaged elements unified with paint, line and paper. The works become kaleidoscopes which incorporate elements of texture, color and design. I hope that viewing the works brings as much pleasure to the viewer as it does for me during the creative process.
