Artist's Website

My art is about energy, discovery, and improvisation. It's the painting surface that I love--the lusciousness of color in its thick and thin varieties, flat and opaque to keep the eye on the surface, or transparent and airy to suggest deep space. My goal is to stay as close to the edge as possible, to keep that sense of organic happening as if the painting had grown itself.
