Featured Work



The ASSEMBLAGES are arrangements of miscellaneous materials - mundane, common, everyday things - that are transformed into objects that operate on a different level of awareness.

The context of the materials and the imagery allows for an examination of life's dualities and dichotomies:


 obvious  -  hidden 

 balance  -  imbalance 

 holding on  -  letting go 

 connection  -  disconnection 

 simple  -  complex

The most important aspect and emphasis in my work is blunt HONESTY:
the act of confronting and setting free the whole range of emotional experiences, the juxtaposition of the negative and positive forces of life and its consequent death. 

The informal and gestural approach in my DRAWINGS are directed towards immediacy and spontaneity. I consciously and deliberately disregard planning and control in the execution. The imagery is very personal and creates a cathartic effect, resulting in a spiritual release and renewal. 

I often use music to enhance my expressive moods. The auditory element forms a connection to the visual and emotional aspects of the work. Sounds evoke particular relationships to colors and line-markings, influencing their intensity.
