Artist Statement

I enjoy the freedom of being very physical with the act of painting. I use large swing motions of my arm, I scrape, squirt and rub the surface until i get what i want. For me, it's all about the paint itself. I generally have something in mind when I start a canvas, but in reacting to each mark I make, I often wind up in a very different place from where I started. Having been a graphic designer for so many years, composition and structure are very important to me.

Artist Bio

My paintings are all about the process. Sometimes it's about the motion of making marks that result from large gestures. Other times it's about the surface of the canvas. I scrape, squirt and rub until I get what I want. Although I generally have something in mind when I start a canvas, often times in reacting to each mark made, I wind up in a very different place from where I started. Having been a graphic designer for so many years, composition and structure are very important to me as well as surface texture and color. Sometimes subject matter emerges, and I go with that if it interests me. Sometimes the marks, color and form are their own subject matter.
