Painting is my way of giving form and color to the invisible.
It is a process that is both additive and subtractive–building layer upon layer of paint on a woven surface (canvas), allowing some elements to become more prominent, while others are buried beneath.
As an abstract painter, my work evolves intuitively from an inner cache of dreams, half-forgotten memories, and fleeting glimpses of everyday life. The core of each painting’s meaning lies in the “conversation” I have with the work in progress. I begin with an idea or direction, but the work will suggest for me where to go from there—as long as I am in tune with the conversation.
My paintings are built up in layers–like the strata of the earth–using a variety of acrylic based mediums, such as pumice gel, which echo the gritty qualities of natural sand and stone.
