3 And God said, ?Let there be light,? and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. (Genesis 1:1-5)

While painting I try not to preconceive what the final image will be. Painting, structure, and balance are my primary concerns. Many changes occur and the painting develops progressively through numerous layers of brushstrokes that create movement. My paintings technique is powered by my subconscious concerns that deliver unique and significant results.
The paintings are influenced by a combination of various historical art movements including Visionary, Symbolist, Futurism, Opitcal and Spiritual.
Major artist's works are a attribute to the style that include's Albert Ryder, Mark Rothko, Wassily Kandinsky, Van Gogh, John Constable and Kashmir Malevich and Bridgette Riley.
