From the beginning, but increasingly, my work has addressed the nature of my environment. Cognizance of the sky, of water, of the elements, of color, of the patterns created by every visual stimulant are variables present. Some of the elements which have attracted me are the changing qualities of light and air, the peculiar spaces created by pattern, the web of interstices, and the power of time as an element of change. All of these awarenesses provide infinite formal possibilities including incremental decisions about deletion, softening, enhancing, and organizing.
The exchange between process and structural elements has become a way of working upon which to hang my emotional responses to my personal ventures, and to the world as I experience it. This exchange often produces work that looks very different from other examples of my work. There are so many variables in seeing, thinking, and working which are oftimes not consciously recognized. Reaction to those visual, emotional and cognitive experiences will create work that fits somewhere on a continuum between naturalism and abstraction. I relish this variety but recognize that aspects of my visual language are always present no matter the position on that continuum.
