Always in flux
On the edge of Chaos
Resonance and presence
Ever Vigilant and Hopeful
Enchanted by nature, time, and space
The works are made by combining watercolor, photography, oil paint, and digital media. Photographs capture moments of discovery in lyrical expressive painting. By way of photographic transcription, the camera chronicles a work in progress incorporating chance encounters with medium and the spontaneous energetic brushwork. In capturing momentary sumptuous nuances, the veils of watercolor acts as a catalyst for the oil and acrylic paintings. Photography has enabled me to examine abstraction through light, color, and painting in a new way.

“We learned from Oriental thought that those divine influences are, in fact, the environment in which we are. A sober and quiet mind is one in which the ego does not obstruct the fluency of things that come in through the senses and up through one's dreams. Our business in living is to become fluent with the life we are living, and art can help this. “
