    Artist Statement

    My paintings are atmospheric abstractions of meditation and memory. They are meant as resting places, uncluttered oases from our hectic, complex world. They are portals to the rhythms and the quiet mysteries of our lives and our search for deeper connection in our human experience. These serene, understated paintings, with their subtle complexity, are layered translucently in search of radiance, nuance, depth and elegance. They evolve through a process of improvisation, experimentation, revision and intuition.

    Commissioned this piece to honor a passing. Karen Hansen’s rendering of the moment is superbly done, gorgeous. I recommend her artistry with full heart!! Have 3 of her works, looking forward to more. Wonderfully delighted with Samantha’s efforts at UGallery to make it happen.
