"Simply put, my paintings are intuitively driven expressionistic responses to the daily ongoing occurences in life. The influences are many- the history of art, the internet, mass media, artist studio visits, nature (water in particular)....endless
references inform my practice. As an artist my interests lie in creating abstract images that have metaphorical references. I challenge myself to paint the unknown, what is visibly unseen, and trust that instinct and my own repository of collected personal histories will bring me to new unchartered terrain with which I can project my own inner drama in response to the world around me."
