I started painting abstract oils in 1997, at first using only household and construction tools and later adding palette knives and brushes to the process. While I am drawn to creating large-scale paintings, I also love exploring the experience and effects of working from a range of sizes. Through intuition and movement, I investigate the interplay of color, shape and texture, and am influenced by a wide range of international abstract expressionist and color field painters. I also work on mixed media studies and assemblage with found, broken, and collected objects.
