As an artist I am constantly observing the world around me, the crisp fallen leaves in Autumn against the bright blue sky, the urban landscape of buildings juxtaposed with the green trees, the colors at a fruit market. The world is filled with the interlacing of colors and we are continually reacting to them. While others might easily dismiss this interaction, I am energized by the relationships of color, texture, line and composition and our relationships to them.
