welcome to the studio!
My paintings are based on the exploration of three factors: the subconscious, improvisation and serendipity. Being that my temperament and style are one of immediacy, working rapidly has advantages best served when unexpected connections and coincidences occur at random.
Of primary interest is the representation of the act and substance of painting itself, traced through process. The emotional tones of my autobiographical paintings can be traced through the speed and weight of the brushstrokes, color and scale of imagery. The intention is to create a material and emotional connection with the viewer, who can retrace my gestures and sensations. The paint itself conveys layers of sensation and meaning open to the viewer’s imagination.

"The art would stand alone.
Its message would be judged on its expression of beauty & truth."
