Abstract Painter and Thinker
My work is reﬂective of whatever image appears in my mind at any given moment. I spend each morning devoted to roaming the city in search of urbanscapes to document random images and words seen and heard on the street. Only when these words and images — mental photos taken on my morning walks — are present in my mind do I begin to paint.
While I paint mostly with oil, I use a variety of found objects and other materials either to paint upon or to incorporate into my art. With a tactile approach, I paint layer upon layer, then scrape and gouge, leaving only what is necessary. In this way, I treat each painting like a piece of clay or marble about to reveal what lies beneath.
Each memory is a moment unfolded. And each piece reflects that moment.
