My collages and paintings reside in the tradition of geometric abstractions where intensity of color and refinement of form are paramount.  I have endeavored to organize the forms according to shape and proportion while harmonizing the tones of my palette to create a sense of a present moment that is both floating and timeless.  Attention to close values and shifts of color develop this harmonic energy.  I have found a meditative presence that honors yet transcends seeing as it embraces color and form.
