My work is influenced by two different ways of working. The first is one where an idea or concept is played out through a structure so that the viewer can also take part in my exploration. The second is where instant images of structure and color come together to create an emotional language. This language is based on newly realized viewpoints in my emotional existence within my relationships with others and myself. My hope is that the viewer can bring their own experiences to the work to understand those same feelings that they have in their own lives without the simplification of the written word.
