My work is about communicating causal relationships/connections, whether it be with nature or with society. My method of communication is through painting and printmaking.  My style is mostly abstract expressionism. 

 

For me, seeking connections and communicating these connections, has been an integral part of my ‘creative experience’.  In order to experience these connections in our lives,  it is of utmost importance that we not only reflect on the interrelationship of all things in the natural order, but also see ourselves clearly as one system of causal relationships within that natural order, becoming aware first of the internal mental factors, then those in our life experiences, in society, and ultimately in the world around us.
