My approach to painting is intuitive and a continuing process of self discovery. Working flat, several layers of fluid paint are applied to either paper, mylar or wood panels, imbuing the works with an inner light. Scale shifts and unexpected juxtapositions combined with overlays of the linear and graphic, navigate disparate worlds.

 

The density of the woodlands surrounding my Easton home, the weight and transparency of water as well as topographical drawings and photos done while flying are all sources of inspiration. Meandering rivers and roads, or blood vessels, translate into flowing linear connectors, land masses to body parts. 

 

The ambiguity expressed in my works is what compels me to paint
