Artist Statement

   Every one of my daily experiences leave an echo within me that resonates.  The ideas, people, places and things that reveal themselves in my work are inspired by physical experience, my emotions, intuitions, or spiritual insight as a result of what is often a fleeting moment.  Meaning is buried in the same way as that name or word you struggle for on the tip of your tongue or memories and impressions of people, places and events we all try to recall once they are past.  Images may be reminiscent of the shore, a city street, a wooded hillside, a neighborhood, a person, or a highway.  I explore those things through tone, pattern, light, space, color and texture non-objectively.  Deeply intimate and suggestive, the paintings can create sensations that comfort, or pinch, stirring up emotion and memory.  Mind photographs that reflect and evoke everyday life as sunlight and shadow, stillness and movement or sound and quiet.  I am a perpetual voyeur.  Standing back, observing places, people and events and imagining in some way what goes on behind and below the surface, the color of life lived, sometimes in quiet desperation, sometimes inexplicably ordinary but more often mysteriously beautiful no matter how humble.


Done most often in series, the pieces themselves are made up of acrylic, oil, graphite, and collage along with other media on a multitude of surfaces and in multiples of combinations.  I will stay with a series until all of my reactions and feelings about it seem to have reached a conclusion.  Sometimes that is accomplished with five pieces and sometimes it takes twenty-five.  My process begins by activating the canvas with texture and then laying down gestures and marks which leads to color, shape, and form.  Adding and obliterating until the body gives me the signal to stop.  Much like a Rorschach inkblot but infinitely more subtle. Images are built layer upon layer through translucent color washes, scumbled paint, markings and sometimes bits and pieces of cast off materials which are used to enrich the surface, revealing a lyrical, magical and often mysterious world lit from the inside-out.
