I love color, light, and gesture. I am interested in how color, unto itself, speaks volumes. I believe that the expression is orchestrated by subject matter, how paint is applied and the intent of it's application. The unexpected use of color and marks create a sense of story and mystery. I paint quickly to capture the essence of the subject, rather than its details. I love the quality of thick paint, exposed canvas, and imperfection. These things combine to create movement, intrigue, and a certain boldness. My paintings are impressionistic. They leave out the details so the viewer can complete the story.
