My paintings reflect the tradition of the Action Painters and Abstract Expressionism. Working entirely intuitively, my work explores gesture and the physicality of movement and the position of the body in the creation of a piece that evokes both image and emotion.
My creative process often begins with a response to music—literally moving expressively “into” the canvas. Multiple layers of vibrant as well as muted color are applied followed by intuitive automatic drawing. A series of energetic mark making and obliteration creates a history of this “artist’s hand.”
