About my work

I tend to work in batches of 6 to 8 paintings of various sizes. I change my focus and exploration from batch to batch.

Although I am partial to yellow and do not use much black, my opinions on color seem to change frequently.

Often form and color are somewhat random. I prefer the painting stand on its own or have narrative applied by the viewer. I try to have a very open mind when I paint. I enjoy the experience of chance in a painting.

Thanks for your interest!
