My paintings have evolved over these past 30 years from being statements combining representation and abstraction, to bold minimalist color statements, to large maximalist color and pattern statements, to coming full circle back to representation with a touch of abstraction, or abstraction with a touch of representation. Rather than my work dictating my lifestyle as it did in the past, my lifestyle now dictates my work. The one constant in my paintings through all these many years though, has been the search for the beautiful. I strive for beauty in all of my work. For me as an artist, this is what is important and what it’s all about.
