“I have discovered that my motivation to paint is not reason and issues but passion and the beauty of light and color. I am most engaged when my work is primarily visual. Some of my paintings may imply meaning to the viewer but I hope the visual dynamics and excitement rise above issues and ideas: I want my viewers to "feel" their sight.”
