During the last thirty years, I have challenged myself with the medium of serigraphy, for it to be an art form in itself, an "original" in multiples, neither a monotype nor a reproduction. I am a colorist and serigraphy allows me to use bold and opaque or subtle and transparent pigments so that a balance of form, line and color is attained. I am a colorist and serigraphy allows me to analyze and reduce my palette so that an elegant simplicity is achieved.
