Artist Statement

Many of the paintings in this collection are worked spontaneously and quickly. Others require more time to coax the images to the canvas. My favorite result of working this way is the surprise of recognizing someone in the painting, a friend or family member, who has emerged from my unconscious mind. Sometimes visitors from another realm make an appearance. I also enjoy painting referentially, inspired by photos that I have taken.
