Artist’s statement

I approach the canvas with no preconceived notion of what will emerge. I am only committed to following my inner visions and imagination, which seeks actualization. There is almost a sacred demand for attention as I work to spontaneously discover the colors, shapes and composition of the piece. The visual image is a deep echo or reflection of the anatomy of my internal psyche over 70 years.
