Paludem locus
Caeruleus versus draconem
Aeris scintillatio creatio

Making art to me is a dance – a dance of the heart, the creative spirit, the eye and today’s media. I work in the medium of acrylics. It is endlessly innovative, rich in variety of technique, and broad in the range of materials and effects. My intention is to go beyond realistic representational imagery with emphasis on the exquisite detail found in nature. The intricate forms are enhanced with iridescent and interference paints that force the viewer to do their own “dance” before the images.  Because the process requires a symmetrical printing method, I employ the compositional form of approximate symmetry to prevent visual monotony.
