“The still life and its placement within the environment is the focus of my recent work.   I approach the seascape or landscape as a theatrical stage where one can recreate self all over again.

The process is spontaneous, and almost by chance, I become the still life.  As I layer the canvas, the objects I portray establish mood, provide symbolic reference, and in turn, they define the character I become.”
