Art has been an essential element of our space since day one. Art inspires creativity and it has been proven that changing environments increase productivity. It's also nice to be surrounded by pretty things, in our humble opinions.

The tension between the innate beauty of oil paint and the discipline of the artist's craft is evidenced in my paintings. I am unabashedly infatuated with color and the tactile qualities of paint. The work employs form, often only remotely attached to reference. The obscurity of the reference is intended to grant the viewer freedom of interpretation. Paint is applied in translucent and opaque layers and then removed creating a palimpsest both revealing and obscuring precedent features. The deliberate imposition of gesture and form to random happy accidents conveys a satisfying muscularity to the work. The paintings explore the play of free expression within the confines of structure.
