An adventurous personality investigates new horizons.
I inhabited the world of Surrealism until 2003, using symbols to comment on personal, social and political experiences.
During 2004, my physical and emotional environment underwent a huge upheaval.
Accompanying this was a growing awareness of how to step aside and view words and actions with a different consciousness. Consequently my creative focus shifted to reflect this evolving spirit.
Without knowing where to go, I dived into pure abstraction with eleven works on paper and no perceived outcome. This was a revelatory encounter.
I had jumped off the proverbial cliff into deep water and have been sinking, swimming or floating with each new work ever since. Occasionally I land on a new shore, and emerge astonished with the destination.
An excitement for the unknown and unpredictable is the driving force.
