I consider my artistic process a mysterious and unconscious intention where every brushstroke evokes new potential and continually leads me to ask myself the question "What's next?" My inspiration comes from many places; however, I gravitate toward my own dreams as a source and stepping-off point for creating the imagery in my paintings. These images emerge from deep within the psyche of the painting, exposing both emotional and physical energies.
My art allows me to become the ultimate Alchemist. I am always awed and inspired by the transmutation and synergy that occurs as the medium and the surface interact. My process is simultaneously exciting and gut-wrenching. There are pieces that I consider 'fresh' (e.g. swishes and marks, bold and fine, quick and economically applied) and others that force me to search through additions and subtractions of line, form, color, and texture....similar to the ongoing adding and substracting process many artists who sculpt go through. The use of color and form continually demand that I decipher and analyze, unequivocally.
