My abstract pastel paintings are completely non-representational and intensely colored. They may appear to be either microcosm or cosmic macrocosm, but each has an internal rather than an objective source. The subject matter is energy, dimensions and multiple realities. Vibrant color is my primary tool in translating the interaction and transformation of energies. Colors can merge, flow gently from one to another, or clash to create excitement and tension. It is the balance of light and dark (value) as well as of complementary (opposite) and analogous (more similar) colors that creates these effects. Most of my time creating each piece is spent in meditation, waiting for inner direction before taking the next step.
