My ambition with my paintings is to use symbolic shapes and colors to express my deepest emotions and passion for life. This leads me to apply paint to the canvas in unusual ways -- by pouring, splashing, dripping, and scratching. My paintings also require layers upon layers of paint to create a sensuous and turbulent surface texture that is as vital and as complicated as life itself. I use color to allure an imaginative and subtle spatial elusiveness. My abstract expressions are the product of many days of working and reworking.
The steps leading to my abstract paintings are the art of hiding and disclosing. It is the discovery of mysteries of the subconscious mind that are part of my own personal legend. Personality counts. These abstractions hold the promise of dreams, visions, fears, intangibles, and will. It is a collaboration of mind and spirit. It is a form of magic that may speak both to you and for you with a private, secret, confidential language.
