The purpose of my paintings is to give birth to new entities and charge them with vitality. The additive quality of my canvases results in a growth and intensification of feeling through layering and collaging, merging the intuitive with the intentional, and setting the tone for compositions that are texturally rich, startlingly diverse, and poetically resonant.
I start with heavy body and fluid golden paints. Utilizing gel mediums as glue for collages, as well as to thicken, and make paint transparent. For fluidity, and for pouring paint, I use matte mediums.
