Artist Statement

I am always searching for an epiphany. My abstract acrylic paintings are achieved through the intuitive process of many layers. I try to engage the "right" side of my brain with my materials and their physical properties to stumble into an arrangement of layers and effects such that the finished state of the piece is more interesting than if I had executed it with a logical plan. Sometimes serendipity happens.
