Painting Statement

My visual language allows me to go where words can’t in expressing who I am at my core. My daily struggle with the canvas, or lump of clay, before me is to get out of my head, to set thoughts and words aside and stream feelings directly.

The process is like a piece of music, a walk in the woods; it's a feeling of excitement, empowerment, and a deep connection all mashed together. If I can stay out of my head long enough, the resulting image is fresh, alive, and evocative.

There is a vibration, a communication and energy, that connects everything in this universe, and when I paint I feel alive and connected to that energy.

Nature, spirituality and science inspire my abstract paintings. I strive to create paintings that pull one in from afar, and will inform, change, and challenge in the detail up close.
