I paint because I have to. It’s the only way I have of
expressing my very active inner life. My emotions, unconscious mind
and my intuitions translate images through color and light. I
extract forms from the natural world and imbue a sense of luminous
chroma which suggests meditative, and sometimes spiritual
qualities. Transmitted impressions, though idiosyncratic and
personal, find a resonance with others, as the universal language
of art becomes my vehicle for the mysteries of the visual world.
Art is an integral part of my life. It allows me to challenge,
dissect, and make decisions on elements that are intellectual and
intangible in the physical aspect of living. But it also colors the
physical and intrudes in everything I do. I’ve been working in art
and painting my entire life. Styles evolve slowly from one to
another in a natural rhythm, paralleling my life; life becomes
reflected in the work.
