I create paintings that combine two visual concepts. When viewed from some distance my canvases have a soft luminous atmospheric glow obscuring surface detail, but when a viewer approaches the canvas for closer inspection, its phosphorescent effect retreats into the surface revealing the many subtle, intricate details that comprise the whole. I often draw on the canvasses between paint applications using pastels, pencils and color pencils to affect the overall image and to shift color values.
