My paintings give evidence of my passionate approach to finding visual correlates to strongly felt experience. My painterly textures are intensely visceral and the compositions are dynamic. Yet, I aim for a rhythmic flow, an equilibrium between tumult and composure. The act of painting is a sensual experience for me, and often produces surfaces that prominently display the actions of my hand. My method includes both drawing upon spontaneous intuition and deliberate reworking. These paintings come out of sensations felt through my body. Beyond the painterly voluptuousness of a composition, I want my abstractions to capture a feeling. They reflect my desire to discover and communicate both visual and life experience. I strive to convey a direct and pure response in a work that is at once stimulating and contemplative.
