ARTIST'S STATEMENT: My style has been influenced by the light studies of the Impressionists, the pointillism of Seurat, and the brushwork of Van Gogh. Driven by abstract expressionism to move beyond purely representational images — to capture the underlying vitality of the subject matter — my approach has evolved into my energy style. I build layers of complexity into my paintings, which become more apparent with each viewing. I also incorporate this energy philosophy into the technique in my drawings. My inspiration comes from nature and the people and animals around me. ~~~~~~~~~ My acrylic-on-canvas framed painting, Daylilies and Yucca, is for sale.
