“I began the Artist’s Weather Project a few years ago. I took and continue to take daily weather photos, primarily on the shores of Lake Michigan. Lists are carefully compiled of the colors I observe each day. Over time these lists have become more particular and have inspired my wood constructions.

That body of work has led me to the Color Theories Series. Colors expressed in these paintings are combinations of colors from the natural world as well as my imagination. A recurring circular theme evolves out of the interconnections of ideas and flowing thoughts and inspires my creativity.”
