I am inspired by the randomness and possibilities we all find ourselves in - the people, the places, the events, the timing, the juxtaposition of it all. The potential limitlessness of it is astounding and simultaneously makes us as individuals feel as small as a flower and yet as large as the galaxy. And it is that way with the outcome of every one of my paintings. And with colors combinations.
Color randomly and amazingly forms unique combinations of blends and patterns - ephemeral and yet everlasting stories as the colors blend. I use energy, movement, form and the canvas as the platform onto which I express color to its limitless and infinite potential. As dramatic as it might sound, for me, fuchsia, periwinkle, tangerine, aqua are gods and goddesses.
