Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

My style is hard edge colour field linear abstraction, my paintings are conversations of colour, mood elevators.

I paint defined lanes of complementary and contrasting acrylic colours across every canvas, repeated in values of 3, 2 and 1, not always in that order.  The colour for each lane is blended while thinking about somebody, or fruits and vegetables I want to eat, spices in a recipe, or breaking news.

The rub and beauty of my relationships with people, food, race and politics in America, creates internal angst and joy, and that becomes my inspiration for painting complimentary and contrasting colours.

We have a silent relationship with colours, unmindful of the subconscious effect on our mood.

My colour field paintings are designed to evoke positive energy and elevate moods.
