ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I love what I do. There is nothing but the act of painting itself that brings more satisfaction to my soul. There is no anger or frustration, only the emotional output of creative energy being guided through my hand.

Each board, being a fresh page, begins with the layering of colors that has become the trademark of my work. Strings of paint are applied to the surface with a palette knife & drawn one through another to explore the assemblage of reconstructed colors & hues. During this process texture and depth is achieved as the layers become distressed by various techniques which I have created through exploration of the surface.

The energy captured in my work is reliant upon music. While not considered a tool as such, music is an integrated part of the entire process. For example, the series called Middle-Earth was done entirely while listening to David Arkenstone.

While painting, I aim to create and unify dissimilar elements that might not otherwise stand alone. I keep watch on the evolution, encouraging it to grow while allowing for balance. In the end, it’s all about controlled magic!
