For me, art is about color. The journey into art began with an emerging fascination with light, how it changes and defines objects and emotions. I found that my intuitive choices set up harmonious patterns using complements, not local color alone. I choose colors for personal reasons, to elicit an emotional response - to please, to soothe, to excite the viewer. I do not want my art to be complicated or inscrutable; elitist or pompous. I make art to take you on a journey, and like good wine in return it draws wonderful people to my banquet. Thanks for looking at my work.
