My paintings are a response to the physical and sensual world which surrounds me, i.e. light, form, texture, air and color.
I attempt to organize my visual perceptions of these qualities into a cohesive and compelling arrangement which hopefully reflects my excitement for transforming into paint the richness of everyday, ordinary objects.
I would never want to conceal from the viewer that my paintings are handmade and are essentially blobs, patches and strokes of paint, which when combined, coalesce and convey an illusion of the forms represented.
I would like the painting to appear as if it were in the midst of being painted, while it is being viewed, thus inviting viewer to participate in the act of painting while simultaneously allowing their mind's eye to complete the image.
Ideally, I'm hopeful that my paintings will reveal some facets of the extraordinary richness, mystery and beauty which surrounds us and that which continuously brings me back to the easel.
