Artist's Statement

Since the mid Nineteen Nineties, I’ve been working with painting that is abstract and improvisational. These paintings are usually made without preparatory drawings and could not be made with any medium other than paint.


The work presents abstracted references to ideas and personal experiences, to memories, places, nature, calligraphy, the human figure, architecture, music, dance, sounds and smells. The goal is for each painting to be a wellspring of continual possibility, mystery, imagination and engagement. To attempt to do so can navigate a full range of painterly methodology.
