I like to paint, and although I have several decades of western art in my portfolio I feel I have transcended that genre to become the painter I am today. My work may reference nature and the physical world around me but mostly my love is for the medium itself. I paint in response to the surface and the colors that bleed onto any canvas in front of me. My paintings are very textural; they are veiled and ribboned, spun and carved. The colors ooze out of one another into compositions that mirror topography or microbes, or even occasionally a portrait or a landscape. I don’t know what else to say. I like to paint!
