Artist Statement

My work explores the constant tension between the real and imaginary, physical and abstract. The overall tone of the paintings is intuitive and unrehearsed.
Abstract pieces are inspired by blind sketches, image transfers, collages or gestural, intuitive lines. The process begins with little forethought. The challenge and excitement of the composition as it spontaneously unfolds, is the uncertainty of the outcome.

The observer is part of the creative process as the work does not define or prescribe by suggesting a narrative or sentiment, but leads to multiple interpretations.
