My work is about spontaneity, about opening myself up. In my ongoing series of non-objective paintings I let go of subject matter to explore composition, color and line, blending elements of design with intuition. To me, it is all about the process of putting paint onto canvas or paper, and the choices that unfold as each work builds and evolves.
Working off the first brushstroke, for often that dictates the rest of the work, I take pleasure in making marks, observing how each stroke relates to and energizes the next. The paintings are records of my brushes’ actions, webs of gestures that I hope embrace something raw and unseen.
