My paintings explore texture and gesture and are about the memories and emotions that are evoked in the process. I approach them with a sense of play, experimentation and an exploration of the materials, as much as by an emotional response to the evolving painting. The process is also my way of finding order in an overly loud world; an attempt to find respite from the chaos. A calming energy flows through the layers, creating depth, motion and an intimacy that invites viewers to share in a kind of dialog, to explore and participate in the experience using their own personal filters.
