My work has been influenced by instruction from several established North American artists and by my studies at the Pacific Coast Center in Coupeville, Washington. After moving from the Mainland I studied abstraction for three years with Bill Porteous, an outstanding teacher of many emerging abstract artists. To gain an international perspective of abstraction I attended a Summer class at the Edinburgh College of Art in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The collectors of my works say that they are drawn to the paintings by their vibrancy, textures, and to the feelings and memories they evoke. I hope that the joy I have in creating these works is translated to the viewers.
