Artist Statement

My current work would be classified as Expressionism. It is done in what has been called an intuitive process. I begin with the paint and then allow the paint and my subconscious to lead me to the subject matter. Exciting interactions between colors evolve from brushwork, pouring, glazing, spraying and other techniques. I strive to show the essence of the subject rather than paint an overly realistic image. I never know what I will find next in my work. I hope it will be dramatic and emotional. Note that the paintings are not framed. Also, shipping costs are not included in the listed price of original work on AbsoluteArts.
