The goal with all my artwork is powerful visual simplicity.
The first marks establish a relationship with the subject and it becomes a
dialog as I develop the work. In creating artwork, the more I study nature the more I arrive at a language of form and color - yet I want my application to be as far removed from nature as possible.
I feel the light from the sky influences everything because I sense it as not only above but all around. Though I paint a variety of subjects, I find great satisfaction working with land and cityscapes.
Working quickly and with great intensity, I create the poetry of the transitory moment. I want to feel free with paint and don't want to be constrained with convention. Why not throw it, sling it, splash it? It's the artist's mark - it's Mark-MakingTM.
