Every painting is like an expedition, starting from a point of not-knowing, and proceeding without a conscious plan. Staying open to impulses in the moment allows for the unfolding and synthesis of unsorted and inchoate ideas that will become the form and content of the painting.
Scraps of paper or pages rendered in paint are evidence of human expression and notation of experience. Biomorphic and botanical forms, geometric forms and pattern frequently appear in my work. I think of the Self as being made up of all of the scraps and moments of being, and by bringing together disparate elements I create ambiguous narratives that resonate with my truth.
I paint in order to find out what I need to put out into the world. This is the mysterious process and pleasure of painting.
