I observe the world around me - both interior and exterior spaces.

I engage in non-representational painting because I am attracted to color, light, transparency and pattern.  Encountered in my surroundings, these elements are inherent in the plastic properties of acrylic paint.

I pay attention to the positive and negative spaces and how light interacts and color energizes.  Referencing these noticed details instead of pictorially depicting them, I use them as a springboard to explore through my work.
