Travel has often provided the visual memories that initially lead me into a painting.
While the atmosphere and spirit of Mexico have always been inspirational to my work,
visits to Hong Kong have introduced me to new color and spatial sensations that continue
to affect my work. As an abstractionist, the observations and memories may become
submerged as the painting develops, but they resonate and continue to inform during the
My paintings are color structures of rectilinear forms. The initial surface divisions are
rescaled and adjusted as they fill with color, and this color development really becomes
the life of the painting. The work arrives at a resolution when the colors interact and
result in a spatial fusion.
