"Color has always been an essential element. I build up multiple layers of thinly applied paint to create a luminosity, which interweaves into a space that is at times transparent and at others opaque. The brushwork is subtle and the transitions are gradual. The color will just as often pop out as it will be still or recede. I am inspired by the ability color has to communicate emotion, mood, depth and movement. I am attracted to colors that are both earthy and vibrant. Together they create a familiar but dynamic combination that defines my work."
