Artist's Statement

The sensations I experience from my surroundings inspire my work. I begin each project with the surprise of a shape formed by pouring paint on a wet canvas or by placing a random area of color on paper. Then as an artist, I respond. As colors run and spread, they create depth, movement, and morph into different colors. Other shapes and colors follow, each replying to the placement of a growing family of forms. Sometime in this process I perceive these colored areas as metaphors for an experience, observation or event, and this perception guides the completion of the work.

I make art to express my intuitions and emotions and to explore the ways that light and image emerge from color. While working, my choices and decisions flow naturally from sensation without conscious analysis. I try to record these feelings, hoping to replicate for others pleasure and exhilaration that I experience from my work.
