Artist’s Statement
"There is nothing like an intriguing puzzle to get the brain working and few things more satisfying than finding a solution to a perplexing problem.� So while some people take pleasure in working on the newspaper’s daily crossword puzzle I can’t resist sorting through and arranging shapes and colours.� In particular, the interwoven forms and layers of patterns I find while investigating tangled woodlands, meandering streams, open fields, roadside ditches and marshes.� Appreciating my discoveries is easy; figuring out how to interpret my finds and then portray that essence two-dimensionally with paint on paper is the real challenge!� It is this desire to decipher, understand and organize what I see that motivates me to paint."

"When it comes to solving perplexing brain-teaser and riddles sometimes it’s necessary to approach the problem from a different angle, or think outside of the box, so to speak.� In my attempt to understand how "it" all fits together and works I have learned to play a visual game in the search to unravel nature’s elusive mysteries.� My strategy relies on two things, simplifying the complicated and taking an alternative negative, or subtractive, approach."
