Artist's Statement

Paint is my metaphor for life: both are really messy. At the same time, both can be beautiful. Making little excuse for what comes out of the tube, I build my images with exposed brush strokes, thick drags of paint, and occasional drips and spatters. I allow the medium to speak through the different kinds of marks it lends itself to. The "messes" I create (and bring to order) are meditations of light, atmosphere and harmony.
