My work evokes the energy of the natural world and often explores hidden spaces and elusive dreams. Inspiration comes from a synthesis of nature and my inner perceptions. The format is abstract, using colors, textures and multiple layers to tell my story. These paintings create an atmosphere that is both accessible and enigmatic. The colors and shapes lead the eye around the canvas and provide the viewer’s imagination with a multitude of possibilities. The abstracted quality of the paintings becomes something definable, recognition of an underlying story, a universal language of the human experience. Is there a story to be told? Each person is invited to seek his or her own interpretation.
A love of art has always been a key part of my life. I was born in Berlin, Germany, and arrived in the United States at an early age. I received a BA in Art from Stanford with graduate studies in art at U.C.L.A and Otis Art Institute. Later I returned to college for an MBA from Santa Clara University. I have had many solo shows and my work is collected in the United States and internationally.
