Major components in my work are the issues of impermanence, shifting perspectives, and loss, aligned with the dichotomy of enduring hope, that which drives us on.
Although my work is of an abstract nature, it always stems from the place and surroundings in which I find myself, from color observed, a line seen in space, or the found object.
My interests lie in the subtle undercurrents, the not so blatant, crude or obvious, in other words, a case of paying attention to what happens between the obvious.
My work shifts in scale and medium, sometimes combining media. For example, from observational drawn studies made in the landscape to encaustic pieces, to ink on paper, to large scale, oils on canvas, to 3D pieces.
I continue to develop a reductive painting process, involving what to bury and what to reveal and consider my art practice to be a constant learning curve if I am open to all and pay attention. I enjoy the experimental aspect and the constant surprises one receives.
I aim to involve the viewer and hopefully bring them into the piece.
I believe that there is a validity and a need for the poetic in today’s world.
