There is the moment when the surface is clean, open and full of possibilities. It is here that I find a reprieve from our present day confusion. I use painting and color to channel inner dialog into movement. Movement that can be seen and felt. Movement that changes the space it inhabits. Sometimes I look for the hidden and internalized through obvious marks. Other times I simply want to move nonsensical structures around a surface with impulse and trust.

I find my best work is through improvisation. A resourcefulness that leads to invention. I use organic shapes, symbols or simple mark making to experience something new. My art is about movement and finding. I'm drawn to these ideas and the marks that surface in my work and create space for them. Space for efforting and problem solving. A dance of mental imagery. A kind of primary for the developement of confidence and an activation of personal assertions. My goal is to reveal the essence of these ideas and include the viewer in my assertions and offer new possibilities.
