Painting is a subjective, open-ended, and ever-evolving investigation—a personal exploration that allows me to expose an internal dialogue. I am drawn to abstract forms andl arge formats, and I consider my work to be philosophically and aesthetically aligned with the Abstract Expressionists painters.
I have developed my own language of color coupled with calligraphic mark-making. I add and subtract in the process of layering paint, making both conscious and unconscious decisions as I work…seeking compelling interactions between compositional elements. I strive for depth and intensity in my work, allowing discourse between various components until line, mark, and color coexist and feel balanced. Focusing on particular shapes or elements in the work often results in a series of closely related works that satisfy my urges in a particular direction.
