I usually work in series so you'll find various groups of paintings, each one exploring a different inspiration.

Scroll further down this page to read about my Painting Process.

My Painting Process

Usually I  work on 3-6 large canvases at once. Over the course of a few weeks, layers are built up in variations of one palette.

Sometime I allow the paint to flow naturally into organic forms. At other times, my left brain urges me to explore the notion of more geometric forms. Either way, all my paintings express the experience of energetic forces created by tactile texture and color.

Instead of painting what I see 'out there', I paint how the paint, colors and textures feel, both emotionally and physically. It's the experience of interacting with the materials and painting process, that excites me.

I gradually build up texture, color and shapes, switching from tables, the wall and the floor. Working in multiple layers of acrylic paint, collage, oil pastel and pencil over many weeks. Color is added, removed, spread, and scraped to achieve visual depth and tactile surface. 

The physical process of painting is exhilarating. Painting authentically requires me to trust my intuition and not overthink. It’s always a balance between my conscious and unconscious, controlling the paint and letting go. Each time I add or remove something on the canvas, everything changes, and I must react.

This creates a 'conversation' with the painting that I hope continues with the viewer.

Do you want to keep the conversation going?
