My paintings are conversations between my eyes, my head, my heart, my gut, and the canvas in front of me. I paint abstract work that comes from inside of my head. Nature is my frame of reference; I paint what nature leaves with me. I am a painter who loves color and call myself an Abstract Impressionist.
My work is intuitive. I let the process guide me and show me what the work is about. My paintings are an emotional conversation and a constant back and forth between the paint, the canvas, and me. I use quick brushstrokes fueled more by visual sensations rather than an intellectually thought out process. In my recent works, my brush is bigger and more forceful. I am more free to paint with my heart. And I am as much in love with color as ever.
Leaving blank canvas is intentional to make the color more vibrant – it lets the painting breathe. My paintings form a shape on the canvas within the picture plane, which is something that I find visually exciting. I enjoy the process of putting color next to color and that process is the subject matter of the painting. I title my paintings after I am finished painting.
