Artist's Statement 
An artist must discover personally the ways in which one's own psyche and reality can intersect.  The main focus of my endeavors as a painter has been to transcend the traditional barriers which exist between abstract and representational  art, and to forge a synthesis of the two, thereby enhancing and increasing the complexity of the work.  Painting is a truly magical medium in that it offers a myriad of possibilities for the marriage of intellect and emotion, and for the manifestation of spirit.  I have found this middle ground between abstraction and representation to be extremely fertile, both for personal intuitive expression, and for making a connection to "objective" (commonly perceived) reality.
