I am interested in creating an emotionally charged visual experience with paint, canvas and wood. Exploring how specific combinations of marks and colors affect me in deeply profound ways is the focus of my work today. Most, if not all, of my paintings are inspired by landscape and/or the natural world.
I have been most influenced by the work of the Abstract Expressionist painters of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, specifically the “monumental” large scale painting of this genre. In all of my work a sense of the physical is very important. Brush in paint, paint on canvas. The daily challenge is to create a truly tactile emotional experience with these materials.
