In planning new works, I include objects that have a personal significance, that have passed to me from previous generations, objects that may be grand or humble, glistening or tarnished, clear or opaque. I also include things associated with life - flowers, fruit, vegetables, eggs. I paint solid forms that reflect shifting nuances of color located within webs of shadows. My aim is to design the arrangements so that the work will become an exciting visual feast. I try to push the medium so that the work is saturated with richness, depth, and clarity infusing it with a sense of myth, mystery, and memory.
