In both my figurative and my abstract work, I paint the world that exists somewhere between memory and dream. I am fascinated with the interplay between the mythological, the fantastical-and ordinary everyday life.
I interpret the world around me, through vivid colour, stylized forms, repeating patterns and texture– to arrive at a heightened sense of a moment in time. I paint my experience of the world around me and hope the viewer can see something of their experience in the end result.
I am eclectic and curious so I am compelled to explore different subject matter and materials.
I paint in a loose, expressive, painterly style.
My paintings of nature are not so much representations as expresssions of the way nature makes me feel.
Lately I have been making big bold abstract works. I am interested in discovering what the materials will do and I follow the suggestions that show up on the surface. I like big gestural shapes and lots of detailed mark making. I am interested in creating depth and dimension and the illusion of light and shadow dominate my creative inquiries.
