"My mixed media paintings are an intuitive application on paper, panel or canvas."
My mixed media paintings are an intuitive application on paper, panel or canvas. With no regard for the end result, the painting begins to take on a life of its own. I paint into and out of chaos. The “out of chaos” is the calming desire for which I strive. I want the paintings to display a journey but to land in a resting space and create a sense of calm and a sense of wonder for the viewer. The journey may be a roller coaster of emotions, but I know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Struggles are expected but you can have an inner peace and project that onto the canvas. The ultimate goal is an emotional response to the work that is communicated without words. We should all be more emotional and passionate about life, our surroundings, and our work. This is the approach I convey in my paintings. Take your visual enjoyment to a new level by absorbing art work to which you respond. You may have a positive or a negative response but it must be a “response” or the work is flat.
