Artist Statement


When I approach my canvases, I do so with a very loose concept of what I will create.  I love to build my work through layering of line, color and texture. I enjoy the interactions between lines and colors and the forces that are created as they interact on the canvas.  Working in a variety of medium I employ many different techniques including both direct mark making and indirect methods of laying down imagery. 

My work is constantly evolving and I am not afraid to completely cover a previous work and start again using only parts of the previous painting as an under painting.  I have a tendency to work with vibrant colors and dramatic rolling lines.  I mix my colors intuitively, leaving behind the scholarly ways that I was taught in the past and building tones, using them, adding more tone and continuing.

My imagery varies and often is as a result of my moods.  I never finish a painting in one sitting and rarely finish one within the week I start one.  Every mark is an out flow of my personal energy to the painting surface.

My work is a journey....a never ending documentation of the paths that I explore...
