I am obsessed with materials. I am entranced by the textures of the support (canvas or heavy paper) and the way pigments mix on the support. Color is as important to my work as the materials I use. And the entire process is as much about movement as anything. The results are bold, moving statements of color. My paintings are purely an expression of the emotional release I feel during the act of creation. The colors and movement of the pieces capture the feeling of that moment of discovery when the canvas is blank and anything is possible.
