As a lover of stripes, it is no surprise that I find inspiration in the work of artists such as Sean Scully, Gene Davis, Bridget Riley, Morris Louis and Sol Lewitt, all of which is defined by a use of the stripe as a formal element.  In my paintings (or “color studies, as I call them), the stripe serves as a vehicle to consider, examine and explore the infinite nuances of color and color relationships.  The possibilities are, for me, exhilarating and seemingly inexhaustible.
