Artist's Statement

Many of the painting principals that I had learned throughout the years didn’t make sense until I started painting on a smaller scale. In downsizing my images I didn’t want to lose any part of the painting process that I had used in my larger works. I love the intimacy of creating small works and I found it to be the perfect tool to investigate color, composition and form. Working small is comfortable for my body and freeing for my spirit.
