I love color. It is the foundation of my work and one of the first things that draws people. Form, shape, and line are the next elements, and together they help create a visual language unique and authentic to me.
Not knowing why you like something occupies a space where the unknown becomes known in a language spoken from the heart, instead of the mind.
I strive to create spiritual spaces My desire, when people look at my paintings, they feel a sense of mystery and calm.
I begin each painting with a piece of charcoal or graphite and thoughtlessly doodle. This acts as a gateway to my creative playground.
Then I begin adding layers, continually reminding myself I am not making a painting, I'm building a history; it's a story told in colors, shapes and lines. And like all good stories, lots of editing.
I want the joy I feel in living this abundant life to be felt through my paintings. And perhaps, those feelings get carried away by the viewer, making their lives better as well.
