Artist’s Statement:
“My goal in painting abstracts is to create dynamic color studies with movement and energy, invoking an urban, street vibe. In my traditional oils, I am especially drawn to the energy of cities, the pastels of the sea, and the many hues of flowers.  In my paintings of youth sports I strive to capture action, drama, and touching interaction between players and coaches.
