“I’m an abstract painter; I have been painting for 55 years. From my daily studio practice comes discovery, meaning, content, questions, what’s real or unreal, etc. My work projects energy, process, and humor. All I have to say comes from that daily practice, not a preconceived agenda.
I’m a process painter looking for an excuse to paint, and materials I find often inform the work itself. I’m not an art supply store fan, but Home Depot or hardware stores are my kind of place.
Painting is a visual language and it’s not easy to put into words. It’s an emotional experience. I’m looking for some new way of painting or what painting can be. This body of work is about saying more with less, adding and subtracting as the painting progresses.
Every day is a new day in my studio practice… Today’s work informs me for tomorrow’s.”
