My works are what they are.  They should appeal to the Visual.  The pieces are non-representational, best described minimalist.  The elements should come together so it is an aesthetic pleasure to simply look at a piece.  Composition, form, simplicity, the interplay of angles/planes are the important requirements.  They are small scale so elements can be combined in ways that would be difficult to impossible on a large scale.  Small pieces can be placed and moved as one chooses.  Main influences: Mies Van der Rohe, Franz Kline, John Coltrane.  Highest compliment received: "I like it and I don't know why".
