I treat my canvas like a stage set with simplified shapes and forms deliberately placed to produce an artificial landscape. I try to convey the feeling we have when watching the curtain rise in a darkened theatre auditorium, when for that brief moment, we suspend disbelief and allow ourselves to be transported into another reality.
