Working through the searching process of layering, excavating and revealing, I create multi-layered paintings that evoke a sense of peace and beauty. Drawing from memories, moods and the paint combinations on my palette, I start with a loose composition of shapes transforming the piece through many stages. Balancing intuition and intention with the very physical act of painting plus the right brain decisions required along the way, I strive to incorporate mark-making into my work while maintaining the energy of my first efforts. Staying true to these first efforts allows me to stay in touch with my most authentic work.
