Artist Statement

Whenever I start a painting it is with passion, excitement and anticipation as I am both participant and observer as color, shape, and form evolve onto a blank canvas. Color for me comes from a joy of having hues interplay with each other–light to dark, soft to strong, muted to bold, blended to contrasted. This use of color becomes an alchemist’s palette–with a result not predetermined–but with bits and incidents of color unfolding on their own terms. Often I see myself in this process as a vessel or conduit where form, color and shape take their own journey and take their deserved place on a surface. Consciously or not, there is always a conversation among the tools and materials used and myself. The result, when successful, is a hopefully recognizable and enduring mystery that resonates a deep-seated familiarity from the viewer.
