The forms in my paintings are organic in the sense that they emerge and evolve out of themselves. They are, in part, a reflection of the organic forms in nature. The textures and contrasts in nature when elements meet: mountains and trees against the sky, water meeting rocks and land, vegetation growing from earth, are reflected in my work. The contrast, together with the rhythms of these elements, provides the drama that gives emotional impact to the viewer. On another level I am interested in creating moving shapes that reach, on paper, an inevitable place of rest.
