Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

The nature of my work is color, studied from surrounding landscape.  The atmospheric, fluid and  dynamic flow within the power of nature’s presence becomes reference for how I see, what I remember and how subjects appear within the process of painting. 

 Painting becomes a way in which I learn; it is continual; sometimes results in an immediate completion– but not always.  Sometimes I return years later to finish a piece or to change and revise or to let the work remain unfinished a while longer.   I do not start work with a preconceived idea but rather begin with color, abstract form and build a spatial idea from this beginning.  Subjects within the work become defined as I continue.

 I like painting media that is fluid, characteristically has life, frequently leads to discovery and suggests its inner life through chance and accident – allowing risk and change in direction, and vision. For this reason, I turn most often to aqueous media and wax as materials of creativity and intuition.
