Artist Statement

Emotional energy turns thought into image. Instinctual movements of the hand facilitate the emotion reflected in the resulting symphony of color, texture and composition. Each layer represents a moment of effortless decision.
My art is a living, evolving entity, changing throughout its development on the canvas. I have always been moved by work that is fresh and immediate, never final but new with each viewing and I aim to create work that evokes a similar response.
I want the viewer to feel the same intensity as I did while creating the image. A successful image will draw forth various feelings such as peace, joy, uncertainty, vulnerability, fear, confusion, etc. Each paint layer, shape or stroke of color should have the potential to evoke any of these responses....
