Artist Statement

“Whether abstracts or loose landscapes, my work is created by applying layers of paint – some thick – some scratchy – some drippy. A little of each layer remains, revealing the process and creating depth. The best results come from feeling free and playful enough to experiment with abandon, then I keep revising with more intentional marks and gestures.  It’s layer upon layer until the combination of color, line, shape and composition feels right.  Often my landscapes include a bit of humanity, or just a road – the viewer can imagine where it leads.  It’s the everyday scenes that draw my attention and find their way to my canvas. “
