When planning for my June 2015 exhibition, MYTH & MUSE,  I used the opportunity to reconnect with those Abstract Expressionists whose work inspires me.   I studied their intentions, philosophy and visual style.

Fired by these “muses” I worked with fluid, spontaneous “all over” gestures. I continued in my own way, honoring those who have gone before me, their work gratefully etched in my soul.
