VIEW IN MY ROOM
There's something about walking the beach early in the morning or late in the afternoon and searching for beach glass. Little mysterious pieces that have their own unique origins and stories. Things we'll never know, yet are drawn to anyway. Enough to keep them in a jar.

RAW EMOTION IN AN ERA OF EMOJIS I’m most interested in the raw beauty of life. The expected and unexpected colliding to create new storylines. I’m drawn to the gestural aspect of painting. The physicality of it all... How a line, stroke or mass of color from my efforts can both capture and evoke raw ‘feelings’. My work goes through many stages of development. The advance/retreat method allows for constant editing and discovery through applying more paint/color while simultaneously erasing it - either with large flat edges, sponges, a leaf blower, or even my garden hose. I am interested in the gesture or movement involved in the creation of my pieces. My mind and mood drive the process from start to finish - determining color, scale, composition and ultimately, a finished state. Nothing is precious and all is subject to change - depending on my state of being during the development. All of my works are related to a time, place, person or event in my past or present. The viewer will draw their own conclusions with only a simple title to work with. How they see it and what they see is their own to experience. Having lived and worked in Chicago, New York City, Detroit, Houston and now back in my home state of Iowa, I find I have a rich backlog of information in my emotional bank. While I pay clear homage to The New York School, I also appreciate and have respect for Hopper, Richter, Kiefer, Rauschenberg and Schnabel. Finally, I'm a firm believer in painting like I live: Make bold strokes, be well-composed, but allow room for discovery and surprise.
