Artist Statement from recent show - H2O
"There is rhythm and an architecture to the ocean. It offers an endless supply of luminous palaces to explore through
expressive, meditative painting and drawing. It invites the kind of fluid movement that could be interpreted as calligraphic
in the context of drawing, while at the same time the formal adventure of painting reveals for me a huge opportunity for
discovery in what I lightheartedly refer to as exploring my own handwriting to the tenth power.

I have memories of moments in the ocean that are of an extreme intensity and clarity, of countless two to five second
blips in time that are as clear to me as though they were hours in length, specific drops of water traveling in super
slow motion remembered from 30 years ago, almost like they each had a name. That's about taking a step into another
perception of time and that's getting to the heart of the matter.These paintings are not meant to serve as portraits of
situations. They are meditations in and of themselves and hopefully serve as a glimpse into the rhythmic, radiant
sanctuary that is the true home of many."
