Artist Statement:
I am both an abstract and a figurative painter. Although I am deeply interested in human proportion and expression, my visual language is abstract. I am equally interested in El Greco and Mondrian. For artists as different as these two they have striking formal similarities as well. I believe it is the nature of one's investigation that becomes real and not the outward appearances of things.
