Each painting originates without a pre-conceived idea. Surface texture is the foundation for its development. As the work develops I search for the image to emerge and make itself known. Plaster, paint and various glaze mediums are layered, subtracted, and manipulated using various tools. The finished result gives the viewer a unique surface that has a rich almost sculptural feel.
My work is all about surface. Although abstract in nature I strive for some order and balance along with spontaneous composition. I want there to be some sense of mystery to the painting.
I hope that you, the viewer, have a true emotional response to the work. I invite you to linger awhile and discover new imagery, meaning and joy every time you look at it.
