My painting process begins with making marks, drawing, or laying washes of color on canvas or paper
until what develops there begins to suggest to me a structure of forms and color relationships. I let
images that develop in this manner suggest the direction of the painting and ways in which light and
space may be manipulated into a coherent whole. Consequently it is not always possible for me to
know at the beginning what direction the work ultimately will take.
I am always conscious of color
My abstract and organic images are derived from the painting process and from natural phenomena. They are the result of my interest in color, luminosity, and movement.
