I never met a color I didn't like! So my paintings reflect Nature's own colorful palette. My realistic drawings and paintings often incorporate abstract qualities . . . and my abstract paintings typically reflect patterns seen in the natural world. Distinctions between 'abstract' and 'realistic' are often blurred, allowing viewers to seek out multiple meanings and expanded visions within any individual painting. Final interpretation is left to the observer. In presenting an award, a Co|So juror noted, "Combining strong abstract qualities with technical proficiency, the artist has incorporated meaning very well. A lot of depth is constructed very succinctly."
