I have been an abstract expressionist painter since age 5. The immediacy and reshness of this style as well as its complexity and boldness has always spoken to me. To this end I paint with acrylic paint in an alla prima style, in a spontaneous and physical way, moving back and forth across the painting surface, making marks that dance across that surface. I start by introducing color, shapes and line, then respond to their development. I move these elements around, adding and removing paint in multiple layers. The work pushes and pulls itself to completion. I have had the good fortune to live in New Mexico for a number of years where the light, sky and general landscape are captivating. My work is inspired by this beauty surrounding me and is a translation of the energy of my environment onto canvas, panel or paper. More recently, my work has focused on my own interior landscape, guided by my intuition and emotion.
