Corrosion is the last lingering detail that I cling to in a world where everything and everyone is constantly moving.

Surrounded by the chaos of urban life could be the catalyst to why I enjoy painting so quickly. I orchestrate the painting unabashedly, fusing unconscious and sporadic movement with extended periods of concentration that intermittently unfold in my work.

Challenge and experimentation is what motivates me. Never; as an abstract artist, am I inspired by an object, but rather the thought of the object and the way it’s recalled from memory. Using pallet knives, rags, and brushes are only a few of the tools I reach for when I paint. Less obvious are stone, metal, wood, or whatever might be an arms length away.

My current Angel series could suggest images that have stained ancient shrouds. The definition of shroud as defined in the dictionary, a cloth which a dead person is wrapped for burial or as a verb cover or conceal from view. The Angel series unveils a hint or suggestion of spirit guiding us through the chaos.
