statement

How color affects me is an important issue in my paintings.
combinations can cause an immediate emotional response. This might happen while looking at flowers, photographs in a magazine, or simply selecting colors of paint that capture my attention at that moment.
I create my paintings outdoors, under the California sun, where I have the freedom to work physically, without restraint. There is an organic quality to the process, utilizing fluid color to create movement. I never use brushes. Paint is applied to the canvas by dripping, pouring and splashing, with water sprayed onto the surface. Painting for me is about capturing the physical and emotional energy that I experience while being completely lost in the process.
My paintings are open to interpretation. Each person will find their own meaning in the work.
