My paintings are my icons; in their composition, they appear to the beholder as windows that speak to the individual’s yearning for fulfillment. Each is a portal, bordering both time and physical space, across which we can move and find the connections between the levels of longing and the collective unconscious. The colors which predominate throughout are inspired by experience working in religious iconography. Gold, the alchemist’s ultimate goal; red, the color of divinity; blue, the color of humanity; and finally, green, the color of hope.
