Welcome to my website. I have several bodies of work not represented here. You are looking at a work in progress. Thanks for stopping by!
There are two portfolios, Couch Paintings and Abstract Painting
Couch Paintings Artist Statement: What do couches and chairs represent? The first, most obvious answer is rest. I was doing a lot of meditating during the year I created these paintings, which are a manifestation of my courtship with stillness.
Abstract Paintings Artist Statement: These paintings map a process that goes something like this:
Play and pleasure make the canvas glow. Frustration makes for tension. I work on several paintings at the same time, in a very physical way. They have no message other than celebrating the pure joy of painting, itself.
Abstraction is difficult because the goal is unclear and different every time. I keep telling myself, if I need a rest, I can always go back to painting chairs.
