I work primarily in the medium of paintings, with two distinct styles: abstract and figurative. My art tends to be spontaneous and experimental expressions of my responses to occurrences within my everyday life or to the tumult of global news cycles.
My work is filled with strong emotional content. Texture is my language. I lay it down in a dance with the surface and watch it take shape and form. I use a variety of tools to push, pull , create lines and scratches, never relinquishing control. I often mix colors on and off the surface, using spatial ambiguity, gestural stroke and splashes. I continue to work, adding layer upon layer until the canvas speaks to me, signaling dismissal that my work is done.
