Artist Statement:

I consider my work in resin to be studies in color and composition. My initial inspiration came from the vibrant colors and unique combinations I saw repeatedly during my stay in Italy in the summer of 2003. Resin has proven to be the perfect material for me to express these color experiences in my work.
