For me, the act of painting is spiritual, shamanistic (healing) and transformative. “Truth” is found though process and the materiality of paint.
Rooted in the history of Abstraction, my subject matter may not be obvious; and always left open to interpretation. It emerges from the rhythm of my endless mark making and adjustments to the surface, and the play between intentionality and the use of the subconscious. This struggle often times reveals an imagery that reflects my relationship to the outside world and my life, whether it be a landscape where my Mother’s ashes have been scattered, a self –portrait, a waterfall that heals, or just my deep love of great painting and my connection to it’s history and future. In the end, the act of painting and paint itself is first and foremost and has always been my way of making sense of my life, who I am, what I love and what I believe in.
