I'm a studio painter influenced by trompe l'oeil, abstraction and later, photo realism. Although I don't adhere to all the cannons of either school, I feel at home with their ideals. My paintings hover somewhere between illusion and realism.

I work in series to explore an idea fully and express it clearly. A series can be about common objects placed in fresh relationships that beg a new response. On another level, they are about using line, form, mass, value and color to create both ephemeral space and material presence.

To control a series, I establish parameters for subject, medium and material. They can be broad and allow crossover from other series or tight and restrictive. I have worked with the "String Theory Series" idea for well over 20 years; the more time I spend with an idea, the more it becomes part of my symbolism and vocabulary.
