Transforming an emotional or visual concept into its abstract essence is a process that is both renewing and energizing.

Color, form and mood are actively pursued by the layering and removal of paint. It’s a dance that is often a direct interpretation of music or a landscape or a figure.

This interpretation is often enhanced by a spontaneous energy that guides a painting to completion. Experimentation fuels the whole process. The result provides an interaction with the viewer: this conversation changes depending on things both physical and emotional. It is a lively dialog this gestural discussion and one that keeps me enthused for the next conversation.
