Artist Statement

January 2023

My expressive and active approach to painting plays out on the canvas through the process of discovery. While I may start a painting with a specific concept, an intense encounter plays out as I challenge myself to search for the unknown and create a personal universe of motion and energy. Through layer upon layer of alterations, my paintings show the result of a battle between my creative exploration, intuition and observation.

My current painting process includes pouring paint with gestural motions onto substrates and pressing the imagery onto the painting. I have to consider the image in reverse when I make it. This process enables me to press the paint into dynamic shapes with texture and an organic edge and its similarity to a mono print also connects me to my late father’s career in the printing industry.
