”Great art picks up where nature ends.” — Marc Chagall

I aspire to Chagall’s sentiment. Created almost exclusively with palette knives, my works have multiple layers and engage viewers who enjoy a shifting interaction of colour and line. As I progress in my art, I incorporate abstract disciplines such as Colour Field, Post-Painterly, and Hard Edge. The latter, for example, allows me to explore erasure and underlayers in paintings. I’m intrigued by compositions that contain various images for thought and reflection. My desire is to create a valid body of work.
