Beginning with acrylic color, I build my surfaces using traditional and non-traditional tools such as rubber blades and joint knives. Layering paint and selectively removing areas of it from the canvas creates both depth and dynamic color relationships. These abstractions are meant to evoke both organized systems and chaotic circumstances of nature.
Over many years, I have learned to let process and materials lead me in painting. As both viewer and maker, I embrace the surprising result.
I am a self-taught artist. I enjoy the process of specifying color, composition and working with my hands.
